South Pole (his second expedition) in

biph frozen plateau that environs the
pole, but failed to reach the goal. Re
turning to his source of supplies, he
sent word out that he would not return

of his large party perished is deplora

FEBRUARY 18, 1913
After four centuries similar scenes
are enacted in the streets cf Mexico.
Then it was Cortex, with less than two
hundred men. planting an old cannon
in the street and clearing the way to
Montezuma's p lace. The shrewd oung
Spaniard infused into the inhabitants of
mat land the spirit of antagoni-m, cre
ating waring tactions, which resulted
in the downlall of the inhabitants and
making himself masier of the country.
And ail thiough these centuries that
spirit of antagonism has continued its
existence, until touay Mexico's people
are no further removed from ih- trail
of the serpent than ihev were four hun
dred years ago. A divided nation, and
waring factions altnofcl to the point
where they would see their country pass
into other hands than give up this her
itage that has grown hoary with age.
Again this spirit of factionalism has la
ken such a hrm grip upon the country,
that once again the cannons are planted
in the streei of the capital city, and
amid the thunders of war the palace is
fired upon and the streets are smeared
with human gore. The nation is really
to be pitied, and the United States could
render no higher service than exercis
ing its rood offices in aiding tiiat divid
ed people to lay down thur arms and
join in a united effort to build up their
country that has had more than two
hundred jears of disintegrating, inter
nal war.- It is a seif evident fact that
neither Madero nor Diaz can preside ov
er tbe country in the peaceful manner
desired, and a new man should be
sought oat and elected to till the presi

that ever passed down Pennsylvania

thousand men in the line already have
been received. It is feared that further
requests will mske the band of march

aggregate 20.000 men, according to a

poiuicai oames to comment eoitoriauy
on the fitness or unfitness of aspirants

however. Saturday the Lexington Herald
contained one of these exceptional cas
es. In speaking of Hon. W. A. Byron,

sented the Twenty-sixth Senatorial dis

Mr. Byron a tribute accorded to few

The member of both branches of

Mr. Byron was a member of the State
Senate in tK)2, and was selected by
Gov. McCrea-y to place his name before

firmed by the Legislature. His speech
on that occasion won for him a high rep
utation as an orator, which was further
augmented by his masterly address on

St. Louis in 19o4. Senator Bryan is a
lawyer of ability and served with dis
