HEARST'S MEXICAN RANCH.
The latest turn in the Mexican mess
gives Hearst a chance to rave again
and hysterically demand intervention.
And for the same old reason: Hearst
owns a ranch of a million acres or
so in Mexico. Gen. Otis of the Los
Angeles Times owns more than that.
The Guggenheims have ore con
cessions and Standard Oil has big oil
interests. Internal troubles in Mex
ico interfere with the profits of Amer
icans who have Mexican investments.
If they can force Uncle Sam to in
tervene, send an army of occupation
into Mexico and pacify and police the
country why, then, Hearst, Otis,
Guggenheim, Rockefeller et al can
make more money.
Besides that, if we can be pushed
into war with Mexico, it will keep all
the army we have all-fired busy for
years to come and give the militar
ists a chance to howl for a bigger
regular army. And it would weaken
President Wilson's hand in dealing
with European belligerents.
It would be interesting to kno
who Is furnishing the money to
finance Villa's campaign, whose pur
pose is to force American intervention
ALD. RODRIGUEZ. While Aid.
Rodriguez of the 15th ward is a So
cialist, he has been a good alderman
for all of the people of Chicago ex
cept the exploiters. He has been on
the people's side of every issue before
council, and has rendered valuable
public service. The fighting for his
re-election should not be left to the
Socialists alone, but should be taken
up by all citizens in the ward who
want honest representation, no mat
ter what party they vote with. If
members of the working class appre
ciate real representation they should
back Rodriguez to a man.
BILL ALLEN WHITE ON KANSAS
Any one desiring the sweet boon of
personal liberty that comes with the
royal American privilege of coming
home drunk, driving the family to the
neighbors in their nighties, of put
ting b children to work, of pay
ing no female help what he can
squeeze them down to, of starting a
wildcat bank, of selling unlisted
stocks, of deserting his wife without
committing a felony, or of betting on
a horse race or an election should
avoid Kansas. She is queer that way.
She won't stand it! Jt's her New Eng
land conscience, and ifs ingrown.
William Allen White in the American
