DAILY COMMENT ON PrOPLE AND THINGS
Military authorities say it would
take an army of 56(000 men six
months to subjugate Mexico, and
would cost 52,000,000 a-day.
After hat it would cost an addi
tional $150,000,000 each six months
for an army of occupation.
This is only the money cost. There
can be no accurate estimate of the
loss of life, but that would be heavy
because our army would have to
fight all Mexico.
Yet this is what Hearst wants this
country to do to protect the invest
ments he and other rich Americans
have made in Mexico.
We'd better tand by Wilson and
save both the lives and the money.
Let the Mexicans fight it out them
selves. Of course, not a single American
who has investments in Mexico would
shoulder a gun.
They would stay home and tell the
soldiers how to fight.
In the meantime, we might better
get busy and smash that corner in
the egg market.

Of course, they will reply upon
workingmen or sons of workingmen
to do most of the dangerous police
work, just as they depend upon them
to scab during labor troubles.
The pity of it is that workingmen
and the sons of workingmen will fall
for that kind of work.
What those fool business men will
do to Indianapolis as a business cen
ter will be worth watching.
One thing they will do will be to
advertise Indianapolis as a good town
to stay away frohi.
