MEXICO "GERMAN'S ALLY F
The joyouB satisfaction expressed in
Germany over the growing troubles
of the United (States with Mexico leads
interest to certain rumors that might
bo Ignored. These rumors are to
tho effect that Germany herself ls
lsrgely respouslble for Mexico's ex
An American traveler who spent
somo timo recently in close contact
with political circles in Germany ia
quoted as saying that he found Berlin
in confident anticipation of tho en
trance of "an?tJier ally" into the
field. That olly was to be Mexico,
whose revolutionary leaders, whether
for or against Carranza, were said to
have "been bought with downright
cash." Mexico was expected to he
"another Turkey". She would pro
voke war with tho United States,
thereby "punishing" this nation for
sympathizing with the Allina and
selling thom munitions. And . ac
cording to the Berlin view, there
would be two results of immediate
practical value to Germany.
First, our output of munitions
would bo diverted and kept from
Second, we would be so engrossed
in the Mexican war as to leave Ger
many freo to resumo her submarine
warfare against merchant vessels
without molestation from us. '
It must be admitted that recent
eventB in Mexico and news dispatches
from Germany tend to support thlB
view. Thoro has been renewed Ger
man . clamor for the resumption of
U-boat warfare. Admiral' Koester ia
reported lo havo deduced repeatedly
in tlie last, few days that the attacks
on merchantmen were to be renewed
with greater violence than ever. Many
Gorman newspapers while urging thia
course, have pointed to our embroil
ment with Mexico as an immense
benefit to Germany.
But lt Germany has actually bribed
Mexican leaders tb for ec war .upon
us-J: which as yet there is no proof
1-or even if Germany ; bs merely re
joicing, with c\ean hands, dyer a pre
dicament tlmt seems to; bado. well for
li or. Rho Iii pr olia bl y minnon. War
?wfth Mexico will not have the result
j There would no doubt be a moderato
flacking, for a time, bf our munition
shipments to Europe; but our. pro
duction would be so . enormously ac
celerated that the effect qn the Euro
pean struggle Vv'ould bo ulmoiib no?li
jglble. & "AndI as.'fpr; the ^submarine Is
sue, the Gorman government -wtil be
everlastingly deceived If lt Imagines
that any difficulties with Mexico will
divert us from compelling full ob
servance of bur rights In European
waters. ' ,
It is the army what is needed In
Mexico. .Our fleet, which is the on
ly arm we should uso anyhow IL wo
ware drawn into the European con
filet, would be available to defend
American property and lifo agaluat
any further U-boat frightfulness. And
war In this hemisphere,- far - from
making its submit; to European Impo
sitions, will quicken our fighting
spirit, and stiffen our resistance to
wrong in. every quarter of tho world.
THE PRICE OF PAPER k
I- V ...-.
The cnr.t of printing;, paper has
risen so high ss tb dr-Iyo tunny news
papers out of business and Impose ?
grievous' burden on ail the rest. It
used to be an a^lom. tn the newspaper
world that the readers' pennies would
just about pay ipr the white paper
naed. Today; the price at which
most nowspapeW uro nola doesn't
come anywhere near paying for the
paper in thom. The cost pf paper

two ago'are now published at a losa,

cared to adopt thia method cf - recoup

Whether thc rlp.a lr. tho price pt
printing paper Ir. legitimate is op??i
to serious-question.1 At tins annual
meeting of iba. National Editorial Ab
sociatio?,s representing newspapers all
over- the country, it was flatly cha-1

papers, but the entire public, which
ls as much Interested as any editor
or publisher in getting its papers nt
a minimum coBt and preventing the
financlai crippling of the nation's
would be diverted to Mexico and kept
from Hie Allies.
Tho army caste system, which main- j
taine and unbridgeable' social gulf,
botween officers and men, bas dis
appeared from the.British army, un
der the stress of heavy losses and the
noccflsity for officering a great volun
teer army. It disappeared from the
French wrmy at the very beginning
of tho war. lt has gone from the
Russian army and other European ar
mies. Only In Germany and the
United States are the rigid dlstinc-?
tions bf military caste still observed. j
One of the valuable hy-prouucts of (
service in Mexico is likely to be the
upsetting of this absurd Bystem which
has devoloped in time of peace. It
is wholly contrary to the spirit of
American life. Our amy, aside
from the necessities or discipline,
ought to be aB democratic es our
civilian life. And it probably will
bo, If tho Mexican campaign entails
tho raising of additional forces and
protracted service in the field of large
numbers of volunteers.
The presence of the National Guard,
and its absorption into the regular
army, will be a powerful factor in
this democratization. - Civilian troops
will not swallow tho arrogance which,
according to army tradition, goes
properly with gold-braided uniforms.
The guardsmen and the new volun
teers will laugh at snobbishness. And
the endurance of common hardships
and' perils will have a wholesomo ten
dency in the samo direction.
Hereafter it will probably be pos
sible for an American officer, to be
friendly and sociable to his enlisted
men, when off duty, without incur
ring the. scorn of his brother-officers
for making a "vuigar exhibition of(

For Bevcral' years Capt. Thrower
was engaged in railroad work, but
gave it ,up to engage in farming and
saw mill business. Lately, however,
he was ' connected with' one of the
DuPont's powder mills at Hopewell,
Va. While in .tito city Capt Throw

Two visiting young ladies created
a flurry of excitement yesterday
morning when the train bearing Capt.
Gossett'a machine gun crew was about
depart from the local station. It
was noshing very' sensational they,
did, nor anything derervlng of censure.
They simply threw their arms about
the neck of one of tho departing
young recruits and hissed ?. him right
dab In the mouth-something that
any red-blooded man would have sub
mitted to most gracefully, which was
exactly the way this young fellow
djd. They were no kin folks, but
mutual good friends. . From what
cculd be learned of the delightful af
fair, it seems that the . young ladies
bad made the remark to other parties
that they were gobi g to kiss this par
ticular young man gooffbye. About
time for the train to depart the yoting
ladles were reminded' of what . they
had said,' and, not to be taunted,, and
to s?ow their enthusiasm, they called
