PRESIDENT WILSON is taking perhaps the wisest course possible in the
Mexican entanglement, and this will probably bo demonstrated before
many weeks. The Oregonion cartoonist draws some graphic pictures of
Americans being hanged and burned and all that sort of thing, all of
which is untrue. That some Americans suffer from the conditions is a
necessary corollary of the conditions. A state of war always brings suffering
and death, and with it the loss of property. But Americans are treated bb
well as the circumstances will admit, and as well as the Mexicans thomsolves.
The Huerta government, if it can be called that, is doing all it can to protect
American life and property, and that is all we or any othor nation can ask.
It is evident that President Wilson is endeavoring to starve Huerta out.
By-refusing to recognize him his ability to borrow money Is reduced to a min
imum, and without money bo must soon stop down and out. With his extin
guishment it is hoped some form of government will be established, some agree
ment made by the leading citizens of that unhappy country that will permit
the United States to assist In bringing order out of chaos, and help the Mexl'
can people, to again got their affairs on a, stable basis.
Money it the most cowardly thing on earth, and its owners are not going
to take any chances on loaning it to a quasi-govornment that the United States
does liot recognize, and which must win its fight, or the capitalists lose. It has
boon proved to allow the rebels to get arms over the American border. To
this is the objection that them same arms might be turned against us in case
we are compelled to intervene, but thero is the rather ghastly fact behind it
that there would not be so many Meiiifms left to contend with. This Booms
a cold-blooded viow of the situation, and one, filled with death, but at least It
Is not death to our own people Intervention, so glibly talked about is fur
from being a trifling matter. It mount thousand of vacant chairs In American
honied. It means thousands of young Americans lying with their toes toward
the grans roots in Mexican soil. It menns hundreds of millions of dollars spent
in killing human beings. It meant a situation far nioro serious than that now
confronting us. It means that once undertaking the pacification of Mexico,
we will have to go through with it, and that we will for years be engaged in a
war with bo irregular and irresponsible army of guerillas. It nutans that wo
will then have the task of getting out of Moxico with honor to ourselves and
justice to that country, confronting us, and this is far more serious than getting
luto Mexico, If President Wilson can find the solution by the "hunger
strike," he will have achieved one of the greatest victories of police tho world
has ever known. Lot us all be patient and give him a chance to work out the
problem along these linos.
COMMKNTINO RATIONALLY on what ,1. J. Hill said concerning land
values in Oregon In his rocont speech lu Portland, tho Evoning Tele
gram says editorially:
"Summed up, all of Mr. Hill's utterances on this subject ran to tho
, effect that tho value of land, that is to say tho real value which would
contribute to the welfare of tho community, lay iu its use; ami that the best
use to which it over could be put wns when some honest and Industrious citir.cn
settled himself upon a bit of it as a bampmnkor."
Wo havo had considerable to say concerning Mr. Hill and his methods In
thi past few days, and hod hoped to let go, but it seems that thero is still much
left unsaid, Mr. Hill has been a successful railroad-builder, an exploiter of
men and localities. In a way he has dono much to benefit certain communities,
and Incidentally hlmsolf, Wo aro finding no fault with him for that. What
we object to is hit traveling under false pretenses and posing as a public bene
factor. Hero Is a statement that shows how hit talk and his platitudes sipmre
with his practices.
Ho tells Portland people seriously that land values aro too high. He as
serts that "tho value of land lies in Its use, ami that tho best use to which It
can be put Is when some honest and Industrious citizen settled himself upon
a bit of it as a homemaker."
This sounds good, and Is certainly adapted to catch tho ear and make one
think that Mr. Hill is a real simon-pure philanthropist. What aro the fnctsf At
we understand It, Mr. Hill, or at least the Hill family of which ho is the head,
ownt 000,000 acres of land in Oregon, Is he or any of his family doing any
thing toward putting these lands on tho market at low prices! Is ho or his
letting "tome honest and Industrious citizen settle himself in a bit of It as a
hoinninnkerf "
Not to any great extent. According to Mr. Hill's statement and ideas, his
SOO.OOO acres of land would make homes for 20,000 families and give to each
40 acre. Is he making any effort to get settlert on these lands, or is ho hold
ing them to lake ndntagn of the unearned Increment f Tho latter, moat as
suredly, i
Another evidence of tho broad mindedness of Mr. Hill is his sodden awak
ening to tho need of the Columbia river mouth for improvement. Ho never
realized this need until he got ready to put on a line of steamers between
Portland and San Francisco. It was noticeable that ho discovered this need
very suddenly then.
History records tho fsct (list when Kngland Imported a Dutchman for king,
being shy on a king full, that as ha landed, he stumbled, and straightening
himself up, forgot his preered speech and contented himself with saying: " I
come for all your goods." We fancy Mr. Hill, when he comes "for the good
of all," gelt the Dutch twist to the language.

Washington, Nov. 13. "I like thiB
school because I never could have
learned anyything, and I am more use
in the world." This it the way a girl
pupil in the Elementary Industrial
School of Cleveland, Ohio, describes her
impressions of the new kind of school
work, according to a bulletin just issued
by the United States Bureau of Edu
cation. The Elementary Industrial school was
established to give "hand-minded boys
and girls as good a chance as the
"language-minded" have always had.
Cleveland was one of the first cities
in the United States to make a distinc
tion between the two types of children
those who tnke to books and those
who do not. In Cleveland, as in most
American cities, about half the child
ren have been leaving school in the
sixth grade. The Cleveland school auth
orities saw that much of this waste wns
duo to tho attempt to force abstract
intellectual effort ou boys and girls
whoso interest was in doing things. The
Elementary Industrial school was meant
to meet this situation. To it boys and
girls wore admitted if they were over
13 years of age and were two or throe
years behind their grade in school.
In this school ono half of the time
is devoted to English, mathematics,
geography-history, the two in close son
nection, and to hygicno of a thorough
ly practical character. The remaining
periods are given to manual and indus
trial work including shopwork to do
'mestic. economy and gymnasium prac
tice. A poll of tho pupils showed that
with tho girls cooking and sowing wore
favorite subjects: with tho boys, mo
chanicnl drawing and woodworking. In
other schools of the sumo type which
it Is proposed- to have in Cleveland, it
is probable that the course will be ex
tended to include a year or more of def
initely vocational of trade school work,
in preparation for specific employment.
I Tho school hfis been successful, oven
in tho fact of adverse conditions. The
enrollment has doubled In the st four
years. Pupils who had long since lost
: interest Inschool work of any kind,
'some to tho extent of being known as
"dullards and incorrigibles," hove bo-
come eager and alert, not only in tho
hand subjects, but in the academic
work as woll.
In s'HMiking of tin Cleveland work,
l'rof. W, N. llailmnnn, author of tho
Korean's bulletin, says:
"The ordinary school was born among
and for tne innguagomimiou. mm
lectual and physical culture not man
mil self-expression and economic In
sight wns its aim. The industrial
worker wfns practically excluded from
It; he had no leisur for It, no timo to
engage In its play. This onosidodness
still clings to the school, and it is hard
to eradicate.
"Tho Cleveland l.lomontnry Indus
trial school may not offer the best gen
eral solution, cetmlnly not tho only so-
Look at the tongue, mother! If coat
ed, it is a sure sign that your little
one's stomach, liver and bowels need a
gentle, thorough cleansing at once.
When peevish, cross, listless, pale,
doesn't sloop, doesn't eat or act natur
ally, or is feverish, stomach sour, breath
bad; has stomachache,, sore throat, di
arrhoea, full of cold, give a teaspoonful
of "California Syrup of iilgt" and in a
few hours all the foul, constipated
waste, undigested food and sour bile
gently moves out of its little bowels
without griping, and you have a well,
playful child again.
You needn't coax sick children to
take this harmless "fruit laxative;"
they love its delicious teste, and it al
ways makes thorn feel splendid.
Ask the druggist for a 50-cent bottle
of "California Syrup of Figs" which
has directions for babies, children of all
ages and for grown-ups plainly on the
bottle. Beware of counterfeits told
here. To be sure you get the genuine
ask to see that it is made by "Califor
nia Fig Syrup Company." Refuse any
other kind with contempt.
