The American Union Against Militarism, whatever
that is, has invited W. J. Bryan and two other Americans
to meet three prominent Mexicans at El Paso and try to
arbitrate the differences between this country and Mex
ico. Arbitration is a good thing in most cases, but this
is one where it cannot be used. In the first place Mexico
has no government with which we can deal. Carranza,
tne nominal neau ox sucn government as Mexico can
claim, is utterly powerless to carry out any agreement
that might be reached, and his promises are of the kind
made to be broken.
There is no dispute between the countries, nothing to
be argued or arbitrated. The United States wants noth
ing but for the Mexicans to stay on their own side of the
border, and while there to protect the lives of such Amer
icans and other foreigners as are within her borders, just
as Mexicans are protected in this country.
I Suppose these gentlemen should meet and arrive at
The better class of Mexicans in the capital city are; the conclusion that Mexicans should stop raiding across

her trade relations with the Latin American republics i The United States has simply said to Mexico: "Thou
will be disturbed. It is true this country has been trying; ghalt not kill;" Thou shalt not steal; Thou shalt love they

two Americas, and is anxious to do so. It wants their
trade and it wants more, their friendship. It is not fear
of our neighbors but an honest desire to cultivate and
retain their friendship that has moved us, not a desire
to gain their trade alone. The policy of this country is
to keep the continents of North and South America in the
control of the people's now governing them; to unite the
whole. in an understanding that the good of one is the
good of all; to create a feeling of implicit confidence in;
each other, and by this course strengthen the weaker
against any possible foreign subjugation.
That is what we want now, but we do not want it bad
ly enough to have to submit to a reign of anarchy across
our back fence that almost daily breaks through and onto
our side of it. We do not want it badly enough to submit
to having our citizens, when in another country, deprived
of life, liberty or property by lawless bandits, whom our
neighbor does not even try to control. The price is too
high. If Mexico or any of our sister republics expect this,
then they will be disappointed. Mexico must be taken out
of the hands of the anarchists now controlling her des
tinies, and placed on her feet. She is powerless to help
herself, and there is none to aid her but the United States.
It is a thankless job, "but it will have to be done, and we
might as well begin the work and have it over with.
it not be an astounding spectacle to see a great nation
solemningly agreeing with an utterly irresponsible gang
of bandits to arbitrate the ten commandments?
Yet this American Union Against Militarism gravely
suggests that the United States do this thing, so far at
least as three of the commandments are concerned.
The Morning Mummy is quite indignant because of
the exposure of its efforts to fool the public into thinking
it is printing the news by 'giving publicity to fake rumors
of a sensational character. Only a few weeks ago it
plunged this country into war with Germany upon re
ceipt of the kaiser's reply to President Wilson's final sub
marine note and it had to stay up all night and issue
an extra in order to do it. Of course it really did no
harm because everybody laughs at the clumsy attempts
of the old Statesman to become a newspaper, and refuse
to take any thing it says or does very seriously. The
Capital Journal, on the other hand, has no particulai
desire to fill space with laudations of its own
The Oregonian doubts the propriety of appointing At
torney General Gregory to the place on the supreme
bench made vacant by the resignation of Justice Hughes.
It bases its doubt on the fact that Gregory has been, as
attorney general, connected with the' Utah water power
suit and some others that would necessarily come before
him as a justice; and that he would have preconceived
opinions concerning these questions. While this is no
doubt true, would it be possible to get any man on the
bench who would not have some proconceived opinions
as to some of the cases that would come before him? If
such a man could be found would not the fact that he was
a person who had no opinions on any subject make him
unfit for the place?
The Latin republics are taking a very sensible view
of the Mexican situation, and will let the United States
and Mexico settle their troubles to suit themselves. No
sonsible man or nation can blame the United States for
trying to put an end to the anarchy in Mexico, and most
such will heartily commend the efforts, for the Mexicans
have gotten in such condition that they cannot help them
selves. Only the coming to the front of another Porfirio
Diaz would enable them to settle their troubles and such
men are scarce, especially in Mexico.
The latest war rumor is that Great Britain is feeling
the effects of food shortage due to the activity of the Ger
man submarines. As just now there are no ships being
torpedoed and as there has always been a great fleet of
merchant ships reaching England, it is quite certain that

ably is, it was a case of basest treachery on the part of the
Mexicans. However their story is but the prelude to the
main event. What the fate of the command was, was not
known up to last night, and grave fears are felt that it
has been annihilated, Until the complete story is known

The Mexican officials at Tuxpam. Yucatan, threaten
to kill every American in the place if a warship shows up
off their port. They might do this, but their little old
town would have something happen to it, when the news

The man who never had a chance, the victim of fell
circumstances, who ne'er was Johnnie-on-the-spot how
itu and pitiful his lot! He had two hands, as good as
those of t'other chap, who bravely rose, to
attluence and high renown, and was a credit
to the town. He had two legs, without a
flaw; two smoother legs I never saw, and
had he used them wisely well, they might
have made him-who can tell? He had two
eyes, two ears, a nose, the usual array
toes, a dome on which to wear his hats, a
liver and a set of slats, and whiskers till
we couldn't rest; the whole equipment he
possessed, by which the human tribes
advance, and yet, he says, he had no chance.
TJ:e wolf was always at his door; he had no tick at any
store, his wife did washing every day, to buy the hungry
children hay. He had a wishbone and a lung, a solar
plexus and a tongue, he had two kidneys and a wart, and
vital organs by the quart; and yet he raised the same oi l
whinebecause he hadn t any spine.
