personal proclamations nre issued hourly to inflame the
puhlie mind against President Wilson and the Pacific ami

Mr. Hearst in his latest wail of jingo despair calls the

.It is a travesty upon the word righteous to applv it to

how Jimch better for the strong to refrain from crushing
ine wcaic. lor a great nation to prove to the world that it is
actuated by lofty ideals instead of the savage instincts of
greed and gain!
It is no part of our duty to crush the people of .Mexico,
who must work out their own destinv. It is no part of
our destiny to play the conqueror of the weak. AVe can
not end destruction and devastation bv plaving the de
stroyer. Murder will not be ended bv turning Mexico into
aiiuiiiMira. it is nor very enlightened or verv civilized to
wage a war of annexation bv connuesr.
President ilson has a most difficult role, but is most
creditably filling it. The popular and patriotic enthus
iasm for war has not stampeded him. The efforts of pow
erful financial syndicates with their extensive and inter
lacing interests to force his hand are beimr ,..,b,,!v u-;ti,.

as melius man as enemeis, and in calling in the Latin
republics as mediators, has done much to restore confi

including distraught .Mexico a friendship lost bv the
Mexican war of 1S-1").

comes a corrcpoiideut who wishes to

as Iciil puvilego be suvs; "Hv the
same power we enn modifv or reduce
the privilege downward. Why not I
per cent, or two per cent why not
abolish interest (privilege) entlrelyf"
This conclusion comes trout the old
error of supposing that because two
things occur in conjunction one must
be the entise of the other. I.ogislu
tu res make laws fixing the legal rate
of interest, ami in-a general way the
interest of tho-e state- corresponds
to thoe uw therefore, reasons our
critic, the law must emit nd the in

to the (iiestion, it would, indeed, be
a Minple matter: for the same power
that fies th nile ns li nr cent could

iiirge-ts. abolish it altogether. Hut
would uetiiitl interest fall in com
iilianec with the law of the legisla

account for the fact that interest is
higher in tho newer state, than in
the older communities f Surely low

have II per cent money, but would a

on the averaue 'J pifr cent more to
