Stanton Warburton, a Tacoma attorney and former
congressman, is facing a charge of illegally transporting
liquor into Washington. He was a delegate to the recent
progressive convention and had just arrived home when
arrested. It seems he had a fifteen gallon tank of
whiskey and 16 quart bottles of bonded liquor in his
trunk, and the careless baggage smasher broke one of
the bottles. This led to his arrest, and the discovery of
the perambulating saloon in his trunk. He is out on $500
bonds pending trial. A lenient, kind-hearted and sympa
thetic judge would take into consideration, what Colonel
Roosevelt did to him, and how he was driven to seeking
surcease ot sorrow in the llowing bowl, so to speak, when
SOMETHING DUE IX MEXICO
The reports from Mexico indicate that Carranza is1
losing his grip on the Mexican leaders, and that before
long some other patriot will either be in his shoes or try-J
ing to get in them. Whether this will be through a revo-;
iution, which of late years has taken the place of the1
ballot in getting office, or through some Mexican really j
big enough to handle the situation being found who can
find some way of getting the Mexican people together,
remains to be seen. The latter seems a remote possi
bility, or rather a remote improbability, and it will be j
either revolution, or intervention by the United States,
that will finally bring peace to that hotbed of anarchy.
.Carranza is demanding the American troops be with
drawn, vet he knows he cannot cope with the situation
and that conditions would be infinitely worse should this
be done. If he submits to the Americans remaining he
will have his countrymen against him inside of two
weeks, and if he insists on the withdrawal of our troops
anarchy will prevail again.
It is becoming more and more evident daily that Car
ranza cannot bring peace to his country, and that while
nominally at the head of the de facto government, he is
practically powerless. His generals obey his orders or
not as they please, and he cannot use the forces of his
so-called government to quell the bandits, or enforce the
laws. He is president of Mexico in name, but in fact is
He is recognized as the head of the government be
cause there is no one else to look to. Felix Diaz is some
where in Mexico, but he like all the others that have tried
for the leadership is an adventurer, and has no follow
ing, and no force. It would seem that the only thing that
cari'save the country from intervention is the coming to
the front of such a person as Porfirio Diaz. He was a
tyrant, a merciless ruler whose word was law and whose
enmity was death, but he was the man i'Ar the place, the
only kind of a man capable of ruling the Mexic.n people.
Byron could not have more correctly described Diaz had
he lived in Mexico, than when he wrote:
"The tyrant of the Chersonese.
Was Freedom's best and bravest friend.
That tyrant was Miltiades,
Oh! that the present hour would lend.
Another tyrant of the kind,
Such chains as his were sure to bind."
Ollie M. James, the big Kentuckian, made a most elo
quent speech at the democratic convention yesterday, and
there was no more forceful thing said by him than these
brief sentences: "Four years ago they sneeringly called
Woodrow Wilson the school-teacher. Today he is the
world teacher. His subject js the protection of Amer
ican life and American rights under international law.
And without orphaning a single American child, with
out widowing a single American mother, without firing
a single gun, he wrung from the most militant spirit that
ever brooded above a battlefield an acknowledgment of
American rights and. an agreement to American
Director Ralph of the government bureau of printing
and engraving, before the parade in Washington,
Wednesday, issued an order to the employes in the of
fice, among whom are about a thousand women and girls,
concerning their appearance in the parade. It read:
"The only uniform allowed in the parade will be an
American flag and parasol." It is perhaps unnecessary
to add the order was not strictly complied with, and that
,ome hustling was done to gather up several hundred
orders of this kind that had been issued. The word
"extras" was substituted for "uniforms."

that the public looks at with a rather thanklul ieehng!
that it was no worse. It was indeed fortunate that soj
many escaped, under the circumstances, the passengers
being called from their berths in the middle ot the night.
The officers state that there was no panic and no trouble
in getting the passengers into the boats. With the ex
ception of the two boats that capsized there were no ac
cidents. The Bear was a comparatively new vessel, hav
ing been built at Newport" News six years ago.
Only a day or so ago everybody was wishing for warm
weather, and now that he have a small sample of it every
body is complaining of the heat. It is always that way
with white folks, of whom an old negro remarked: "Dey
is sure queer folks dem white menfolks: when dey ain't
wishin for rain dey am prayin' fur hit to clar up." As a
matter of fact it is exactly the weather needed to ripen
the fruit, make the corn grow, and put sweetness in the
berries. Then too remember the iceman has to pay his
bills just as the balance of us have to pay ours, and he
can't save a cent with the weather clerk sending 40
A dispatch Wednesday that Mrs. Thomas J. Preston
had been operated on at Roosevelt hospital, recalls an
other White House romance. Mrs. Treston was Mrs.
Grover C. Cleveland, and before that Frances Folsom,
one of the most beautiful women in the United States.
President Wilson and Secretary Lansing have gone
over the final draft of the answer to Carranza's demand
for the withdrawal of American troops. It will point out
the activity of bandits, and the apparent inability of
Carranza to control the situation, and refuse to with
draw the troops until conditions are made better. This
may compel Carranza to make some kind of initial move
m order to hold his job and keep his own people from
jumping on him. It looks very much as though there
would be. a clash with the de facto government before
It is a record to be proud of, that of Bryan's. For
twenty years in the limelight, making the race three
limes unsuccessfully for the presidency, yet back at his
old reporting job, the party that thrice selected him as
its standard bearer, through its delegates applauds his
appearance on the convention floor and demands that he
again address them. There must be something in a man
who can thus retain his hold on the people, some inherent
quality of greatness that cannot be put down or for
gotten. An X-ray examination of Colonel Roosevelt's throat
was made yesterday. It showed a torn ligament, which
will very conveniently retire the colonel from public
speaking for some time.
Czernowitz seems to be about to again fall into the
hands of the Russians. This will be the third time it has
changed hands since the war began. It will probably be
