WILSON AND MEXICO
Because of the refusal of Huerta to fire a
salute to the United States lla; under certain
conditions, some lighting editors are demand
ing that war be made upon a part of Mexico.
In a message wherein he requested the appro
val of Congress in using the armed forces of
the United States to secure the desired recog
nition from Huerta President Wilson outlined
the situation as follows:
"It is my duty to call your attention to
a situation in our dealings with General
Victoriana Huerta at Mexico City, which
calls for action, and to ask your advice
and co-operation in acting on it. On the
ninth of April a paymaster of the U. S. S.
Dolphin landed at the Iturbide bridge
landing at Tampico, with a whale, boat
and boat's crew to take off certain sup
plies needed by his ship, and while engag
ed in loading the boat, was arrested by an
officer and squad of men of the army of
General Huerta. Neither the paymaster
nor any of the boat's crew were armed.
Two of the men were in the boat when the
arrest was made and were obliged to leave
it ami submit to being taken into custody,
notwithstanding the fact that the boat
carried, both at her brow and her stem
the flag of the United States. The officer
who made the arrest was proceeding up
one of the streets of the town with his
prisoners when he met an office of higher
authority, who ordered him to return to
the landing and await orders, and within
an hour and a half from the time of ar
rest, orders were received from the com
mander of the Huertista forces at Tampi
co for the release of the paymaster and his
"The release was followed by apolo
gies from the commander and later by an
expression " of General Huerta himself.
General Huerta urged that martial law
obtained at the time at Tampico, that or
ders had been issued that no one should
be allowed to land at the Iturbide bridge
and that our sailors had no right to land
there. Our naval commanders at the port
had not been notified of any such prohibi
tion, and even if they had been, the only
justifiable course open to the local author
ities would have been to request the pay
master and his crew to withdraw and to
lodge a protest with the commanding of
ficer of the fleet. Admiral Mayo regarded
the arrest as so serious an affront that he
was not satisfied with the apologies offer
ed but demanded that the flag of the
United States be saluted with special eere
monv bv the military commander of the
The(situation is remarkable in many ways.
In the first place the United States refuses to
recognize Huerta in any official capacity, and
lias permitted all sorts of conditions to exist,
from the free shipment of arms and munitions
of war to tin- opposing tactions in Mexico' to
almost every other act that would not for a
moment be tolerated in this country under
similar conditions. And now in the face of all
this, a National salute is demanded and war
seems imminent for what seems a trivial af
fair compared with acts that have been com
mitted by both contending factions in Mexico.
When war is declared, if it should be, there
is every likelihood that the United States will
have a united Mexico to contend with, and that
a guerilla state of affairs will continue indefi
nitely in Mexico, just us it has for many years
the unemployed in the industrial centers and
nobody for the I. W. W. agitator to agitato.
We can't buy our supplies abroad and still
keep our money at home. Wo can't pay to the
American laborer the money we pny for the
product of European labor. The American la
borer buys the produet of the American farm
and factory. The European laborer spends his
money, what he gets, for the product of other
farms and other factories.
This unemployed problem is not so difficult
to understand, after all, for those who really
went to understand it.
How fleeting is' fame and how small the
swathe cut by even the great ones of the earth
when looked back upon through the perspec
tive of the passing years.
The illustration came up at a meeting of the
Rotary Club of Oakland during an address on
advertising. In the midst of his talk the speak
er paused long enough to offer a prize to any
one in the audience who could offhand name
President Taft's running mate at the last elec
tion. Of the hundred men present not a single
man could answer. "Do you know yourself J"
the speaker was asked. "I do not," he said.
All of which likewise goes to show that one
should never take himself too seriously for in
the general scheme of civilization he is at the
best but small potatoes and very few in a row.
(San Francisco Chronicle)
For a genuine spirit of "boost" and com
munity promotion, the little town of St. Paul,
Oregon is establishing a good record. With
only 200 inhabitants, the town has raised a
fund of $'2000 to advertise its attractions and
resources. This indicates not only an enter
prising spirit but a pretty firm belief in the
merits of what the town has to offer. It is
this spirit backed with the courage to spend
money in advertising, which has been the mak
ing of many thriving little cities, as several in
California can testifv.
W. A. Carter, one of the numerous candi
dates who desire to serve the State of Oregon
as Governor, has put one over on his oppon
ents in the way of economy. Mr. Carter is go
ing to save the taxpayers a measly little two
and a half million dollars by simply prohibit
ing the appropriation of more than a specifi
ed sum by the' Legislature. Now if some can
didate would only waken to the situation and
amend Mr. Carter's proposed bill and make
the amount five instead of two and a half mil
lions, Oregon would make a most remarkable
record for economy. "High Taxation" and
"Economy" are always popular subjects with
the average office seeker, for taxes arc always
high, either because of the levy or the valua
tion, and expenses should be curtailed at all
times. But some how or other, it is always
the other fellow that is receiving the "vel
vet," when it comes to appropriations, for the
benefits we receive personally are absolutely
While claiming no relation to any of the pro
phets, yet the Examiner will venture the as
sertion'that all this "yap" about economy on
the part of candidates for State offices is only
m bait to catch the unwary voter, and that the
expense of conducting the State Government
during the next four years will exceed that of
the same term drawing to a close. As a mat
ter of course, it is quite likely that past ex
i.wrieiiee will indicate where certain Savings
mav be made, ju.-t as it is shown in private
lines of business, but other contingencies win
arise which will require an appropriation, and
the saving in the first instance will be more

the loudest howl for economy in choosing your
candidate for office.
The United States is now importing nine
inilllion pounds of dressed beef per month
from Argetina and the quantity is increasing
