RAIPING THE BOEDER. The
Mexican raiders along the border
have at Jast shown their true colors.
They have hoisted the red flag; the
flag of anarchy and rapine.
All along the bounuary line from
the Pacific ocean to the Gulf of Mex
ico the lawless clans have gathered.
They are not recruited along from
the ranks of Carranza, nor of Villa,
but from both, and are augmented by
the roving bands which have never
acknowledged a leader. "Their own
poor country ravaged to the point of
destitution, they are turning to richer
fields. That these happen to be upon
the American side matters not. The
raids into Texas and other border
states have no political significance.
They are the acts of bandits and
thieves, pure and Bimple; pillage alone
As long as the Rio Grande, marks
the line past which they may not'be
pursued, beyond which they are safe,
these marauders will keep on raiding.
The booty is tempting, the haven of
safety near at hand. To stop the
depredations and break up these out
law bands they must be pursued
across the line. The authorities In
Mexico cannot be depended upon to
help, for they are heart and soul in
sympathy with- the raiders. -It is left
to the United States troops alone to
stop it and to effectually do so. Soon- J
er or later they must f ollovthe beast
to its lair. Should it cause a clash 1

which would be an admission that'
they condone lie outrages, it would
at least cause the cards to Jbe laid
upon, the table. '
