TROOPS SENT TO STOP
THE MEXICAN REVOLT
)ILITARY MOVEMENT TO BORIER
NO LONGER A. SECRET.
-government Believes if Stop is Put to
Filibustering Trouble in Mexico
Will Soon be Over.
Washington, March 9.-That the ad
ministration has decided to dissemble
no longer its reasons for the sudden
aad unexpected movement of troops
.to the Mexican border, is indicated by
tke following dispatch, received to
night from the staff correspondent of
the Associated Press, who is accom
panying Mr. Taft on his journey to
The dispatch, dated Charlottesville,
Va., through which place the train
passed tonight at 7.10, is as follows:
"All doubt as to the purpose of the
government in sending 20,000 troops
to the Mexican border has at last
been swept away. The United States
has determined that the revolution in
the Republic to the South must end.
'The American troops have been sent
to form a solid military wall along
the Rio Grande, to stop fiillibusterina
and to see that there sis no further
smuggling of arms and men across
Expected to be Effective.
"It is believed that with this source
of contraband supply cut of, the in
surrectionary movement, which has
<disturbed conditions generally for
nearly a year without accomplishing
anything like the formation of a re
sponsible independent government,
will speedily come to a close.
"President Taft, on his way to At
lanta and Augusta for a 10 days' vaca
tion, passed through here at 7.10
o'clock tonight. He appeared well
satisfied with the situation. There is
a general belief that the rapid move
ment of troops into Texas and South
ern California will so speedily ac
complish its purpose that the net re
sults in the end will constitute a
valuable lesson in quick mobilization
of an effective fighting force, that will~
prove a revelation to the country atI
large, to the critics of the army in~
particular and a justification of the
diplomatically worded explanation
that have been given out in Washing
Quick Action Necessary.
"There no longer is reason t
doubt that the sudden move on the
part of the American government was
the result either of unofficial repre
sentations of foreign governments re
garding the situation, or the intima
tion that several of 'the European
powers were sounding each other as
to the desiraJbllity of making rep
resentations to the United States. At
any rate, the matter was put to the
administration in such a way as to
call for quickest sort of action. The
necessity for this sspeed of mnobiliza
tion was seized upon by the war de
partment as a heaven-sent opportu
nity to give the army a real test.
"There was little doubt in the mind
of these officials thatc the true mean
ing of the 'make believe war' soon
would be known.
"The Washington government un
expectedly found itself confronted by
'the necessity of throwing an army
,aiong the' Mexican border to stop. the
source of supply to the revolution
ists and to be in a position to invade
]Mexico at a moment's notice. in the
event of the death of President Diaz
or any other untoward circumstances,
which might precipitate general fight
ing or rioting.
To Uphold Monroe Doctrine.
"It was represented at the State de
partment that the United States muist1
act, and act Quickly. if the Monroe
doctrine vwas to be maintained. For
eign interests in Mexico, naturally,
looked to the United States for pro
tection. The interests there, how
ever, are not to be compared with the
American capital invested there, so,
after all, the move to bring about:
more tranquil conditions in Mexico
has to do with Americans and Ameri
"Just what, part the Diaz govern
mtent has played in recent events has
not yet been disclosed. From time to'
time protests have been made to Wash-!
ington, complaining of the violation
of the neutrality laws along the coast
and the border line. It is considered
probable that the Mexican goveri-.
ment may have indicated to E'uropean
powers its inability to cope with the
disorders so long as succor was giveni
the rebel forces from the United Stat es
"Whatever the inner motives may
have been, there no longer is any pur
pose on the part of the administra
tion to cloak the movement of troops
Just What Mexico Wantled!~
"The Mexican government, whether
itasked hell) of this roernmnit or
not, has been given th~ g~'earos: as
sistance it could have desired. The
official note from Washington, made
public in Mexico City last night, as
suring Gen. Diaz that there was noth
ing in the movement of troops that
should cause any uneasiness in Mex
ico, was more than justified by the
administration's announcement made
"There is no telling at this time
how long the big army sent to the 1
Mexican frontier will have to .remainj
there. It will not be withdrawn un
til conditions in Mexico are much
more stable than they are now believ
ed to be. The situation in Lower
California is said to have caused more ]
concern to the United States than at i
any other point. It was reported that 'i
the rebels were exceptionally strong
there and threatened to set up a gov
ernment independent of either that of ]
Diaz or of the revolutionary party."
"The bounrdary line between Lower 1
California and the United States is I
an imaginary one,' and an independ
ent revolutionary government there
would be a source of constant worry
to the United States."

That the measure did not immner

official form. The members of the

measure, but, under ,the law, it is
necessary that the 'bill come up for
a second reading. It was refer'ed to

commission Monday at a special ses

upon, there is no doubt. Under the

the officer and supposing him to be a

A Just Sentence.
The lawless carer of PoDe Havird
was checked last week when Judge
3ease imposed a sentence of five years
)m the Saluda county chaingang. It
s unusual for a white man to be sent
:o the chaingang but the presiding
iudge was right in imposing such a
entence. All punishment should be
n proportion to the gravity of the
,rime. In our opinion circuit judges
rr too frequently in the matter of
ight sentences. There are a great
lumber of cases that should receive
he maximum punishment.
A True Statement.
Among the many good things to
which Judge Sease gave utterance in
is charge to the grand jury was the
ollowing: "Good schools and good
'oads are signs of advance, prosperity
tnd progress." In this connection it
s encouraging to note that greater
tttention is being given to both the
mprovement of the schools and roads
)f this county than ever before. The
>eople are thoroughly awakened and
tre willing to go down in their pock
,ts to provide the necessary means
or the improvement of ,he highways
mnd the development of our schools,
he real condition of whi.ch, as Judge
sease said, is a true ind:ex as to the
)rosperity of the county. '
Good Thing For Any Place.
We have yet to hear the first com
)laint from a single man who has
indertaken to supply butter fat to the
reamery. This is a new departure
or our farmers, but it seems to be a
)rofi.table one. Those who make any
)retense of furnishing ' the creamery
ith milk or butter fat 'have a sWady
ncome of from $30 to $60 per month
rom their cows. This is money that
hey have never before had and it1
:omes all the year ror.nd. Besides,
hey are constantly improving their
and, and this in' itself is of far great
r value than the money they get from
he cows. We don't ~ask D)oubting

WOMEN MAKE ROBBERY EASY.
American women are accused of los
g jewelry by theft or a&cident of-i
mer than women of other nations do.
ne explanation of this is <that they
ave inore jewels to lose, says the
This explanation was advanced by
New York jeweller, who added that'
ne reason why the Xew York public
treated almost daily over its morn
g coffee to printed tales of jewel
efts and of jewels lost and found is
1at American women are the most -
3reless in the world about safeguard
ig their valuables.
"This attitude of mind," the jeweller t
aid, "is illustrated by the totally dif-j c
~rent way Europeans and Americans!a
t when consulting a New York jew- m
ller about having jewels reset or
