Aftornoon. nowapupers that a few
days since were calling attention to
the fact that all the "big" newe was
"breaking" for papers -published In
tho evening;' ar? now seized with -a
wondrous silence. Every single
otory of Importanco with referonco
to the Mexlcun crisis lias "broken" for
the morning newspapers, and a veri
table harvest of intensely interesting
news it ha? been. All of which goes
to ?how that no paper, afternoon or
morning, can get a "corner" on the
nows, and either ono that claims lt
''bas it on" the other, eitner as a
medium of giving the news first or
as a more effective advertising med
ium, is guilty of tho grossest bun
