State Department officials aio con'
vlnced. and so admit privately, that the
United States never will be able to recog
nise the constitutionalist faction, as now
organized, as a legally constituted gov
eminent In Mexico.
This Is the most significant result of the
killing of William a Benton, the English
man. who was executed recently by the
orders of Gen. Villa, commanding 'he
constitutionalist forces. .
The importance of this cenclusibn over
shadows the possible international com
plications that may result from the kill
inc. It leaves the administration's Mexi
can policy again without direction.
The entire policy, insofar as It has been
disclosed, has been premised.
First, upon the supposition that an
orderly constitutional government is pos
sible in Mexico at present, and.
Second, upon the hope possibly upon
the belief that the constitutionalist fac
tion would turn out to be the logical in
strument to attain this end.
o Sense of Responsibility.
Regardless of the first premise, the ir
responsible action or Villa, the real
power and leader of the constitutionalists,
in ordering or permitting the execution
of Benton, finally has convinced State
Departments offiilaW of what they have
feared for some time, that Villa has no
sense of national or International re
sponsibility, nor any of the attributes of
an intelligent patriot or constructive
Granted that Benton was everything
his worst enemies and Villa declare him
to have been; granted that his offense
was more heinous than Villa claims, still
his death should have been jealously
guarded against by Villa with a view to
sparing the United States additional in
tcmational complications, as the United
States is doing everything it reasonably
can to bring victory to the constitution
alist arms. Villas action, whether delib
erate or the result of stupidity and In
difference, was a direct slap at the United
States and a grave setback to the peace
plans of President Wilson.
There is little fear that Great Britain
will force a delicate issue in the Benton
iase. As Is true of those of other na
tions. Great Britain's diplomatists feel
that the time Is uncomfortably close when
to take as'drastic action with
respect to Mexico as could be demanded.
Moreover, the "reeling Is that VUla will
be able to tix up an account of the alleged
assault upon him by Benton, and the
record of the drumhead courtmartlal
which will be plausible enough to pass
No further information on the Benton
case reached the State Department yes

The administration's policy of "watch
ful waiting" over Mexico has created a
good deal of unrest In Congress, and de
bates on the subject are likely to be
heard In both branches In the near fu
ture. Out of respect for the administra
tion. Senators and Representatives have
had little to say about Mexico so far
this season. Members of Congress familiar
with the international, situation express
the belief privately ihat the time rapidly
is approaching when the administration
must either Intervene or recognize Huerta.
Doubt is expressed that the administra
tion will ever recognize the present Pro
visional President of Mexico. Therefore,
members believe that the President will
adopt what they regard as the only other
practical alternative Intervention.

successful In preventing extended dis

The nation and thc'District celebrated rfic centenary of tile com
mon Capital December 12, 1900. Congress made it, public holiday
for that year, and so focused the nation's attention on its Capital as
never before or since. The addresses at the White. House and the
Capitol gave the country the history' and the needs of the 'Capital,
More governors of States were present here that day than on any
other day before or since. They represented the new interest in the
twentieth century progress of the city belonging to all the States. The
press of the country was filled with the story of the Capital for months
before and after. This brought out a national expression of satisfac
tion with the "compact of 1878" between the United States, through
Congress, and the District people, through their representative citizens,
and especially with the "half-and-half" principle of definite, permanent
financial provision. The "compact" was precisely like those made in
the States by the citizens of cities with their State legislatures in
After twenty' years of progress under the "compact of 1878,
President McKinley, in his message of December, 1898, speaking of
the coming centenary, said to Congress :
V As McKinley Saw It
The original plans of the city of Washington have been
wrought out with a constant progress and a signal suc
cess, even beyond' anything their framers could have forc-
seen. The people of the country are justly proud of the
distinctive beauty and government of the Capital and of the
rare instruments of science and education which here find
their natural home.
The report of the Senate Park Commission in 1902, extending the
principles of the George Washington plan so as to provide a park
system for the entire District of Columbia, deepened the impression
made by the centenary celebration of which the Park Commission was
a direct outgrowth and the park plan its permanent memorial. Con
gress already had in the highway act of 1893 extended the old city
street system to the rest of the District to meet increasing growth.
Between 1900 and 1910 the District Commissioners presented
comprehensive plans to Congress for the municipal improvement of
Washington, physically and morally, including the modernization of
all the municipal services, laws and institutions. From 1900 to 1910
$23,000,000 were expended on extraordinary physical improvements, be
sides $22,000,000 spent by the railroads in abolishing the deadly grade States. Already it u endeared to' tie

Meanwhile we ask you to reject or,
at the least, postpone action apon any
measure which threaten to change the
present "half-and-half' arrangement
of appropriations for the National
Capital which, since the act of June

SEVEN BADLY INJURED

Sharon, Pa., Feb. -Scven persons

sylvania train No. ilG, southbound, was
ditched at Pymatuning. eight miles north
of here this evening. A spreading rail
caused the accident. The train was run
ning full speed in a blinding snow storm
when the locomotive struck the bad rail.
The engine remained upright, but six
reaches left the track: and were over
turned, going down an embankment.
The Injured were brought to Sharon on
an Erie train which passed the scene of
the accident en a parallel track about
half an hour later. Ambulances were in
waiting and they were takes to hospltalsj
Debt Too Rapidly Paid. .
The floating debt incurred for tlicic improvements by" the District.
now all paid, has been too rapidly paid, thus cutting down needed cur
lent expenditures and impairing efficiency. The municipal services were
reorganized and many improvements made in the laws and institutions
of the District, including those required for social justice. The na
tional government also added to its improvements. AH this attracted
the attention and approval of all the intelligent people of the country
and strengthened their pride in their Capital.
Every patriotic American, it is clear from numberless tjpical ex
pressions in national conventions here and elsewhere, in the press and
otherwise, desires his national Capital to be physically and morally as
nearly perfect as is possible and rejoices in its progress. None of them
begrudge the small per capita contribution of money which they make
to that end. It now amounts to between 6 and 7 cents per capita per
annum less than two car fares a year an infinitesimal sum compared
with the results. Not one protest; against the "half-and-half" arrange
ment -lias come to Congress from any legislature, society, or individual
in the States in all the years since 1878. Even one-sided and misleading
adverse statements here have not caused one such protest.
Nation Recognizes Justice.
The justice and the wisdom of that arrangement in the interest of
the country's Capital are clearly seen by the country. The iniustice
and the unwisdom of trying to make 345,000 people do the work of
95,000,000 people in maintaining and developing the great Capital
which belong to them all seem to be equally apparent to our fellow
countrymen. Thev apparently realize that the founders were right in
saying that absolute responsibility went with absolute control, and that
the committees qt Congress were right in the reports between 1874
and 1878 in saying that the nation ought to take at feast one-half of
the burden under which the District people had staggered into bank
ruptcy and carry it through the coming years. To them the exclusive
control of Congress over the Capital seems natural, and they suppose
that ALL the Senators and Representatives take an intelligent and
svmpathetic part in that control. They suppose that ALL Congress
is interested in the continuous progress, of the Capital under well-con-,
sidcred plans and in a systematic and orderly 'manner. They do not
suppose that Congress will deal with the Capital that is dear to the
countrj'i and representative of it to the whole world, in hasty, or hap
hazard and disconnected legislation.
Should Be Even More Generous.
They would not like ambassadors and ministers of all the foreign
.vuiuwu iuiui.m ill Maoiiiiigiuu IU .pwl IU llltll UJUIUUKS U1C CHI.C15
of such unsympathetic and inefficient treatment, or to have the foreign
press recording its results. Therefore, the continuance of the "compact
of 1878," unless after an investigation like that of 1874 to 1878 Con
gress should provide even more generously for the national Capital,
would seem to them natural and proper. Regardless of the amount
of land owned by the national provernmertt m Washington, rctfardless
of the amount "of land withdrawn from taxation, and regardless of the
fact that the national government owns all the streets and public
bpaccs, the country expects the government to carry out the ideas of
the founders as represented, for example, iii the report of the joint
select committee to Congress in December, 1874, when it said:
, Primarily for All the People.
From the unqualified authority conferred upon Congress,
and that the object to be effected thereby is the. Capital of the
nation, all legislation for the District must be held to be na
tional in its .cliaractcr, and primarily in the interests of the
American people at large. That the national Capital
might be exempt from the contingency of conflicting local and
general authority, the particular States were to concede all
jurisdictional rights over the territory to be acquired, and
Congress was to "exercise exclusive legislation in all "cases
whatsoever over said District. Hie 'seat xi the supreme ex
