S, MEXICAN SITUATION
BECOMING VERY ACUTE
Pres. Taft Sends Pres. Madero Ulti.
matum, Which is Considered but
Little Removed From Dec.
laration of War.
a of (Special to the Journal)
hed Washington, D. C., Jan. 2,-The
gan Mexican situation, owing to the failure
of Prtident Madero to protect Ameri.
of can citizens' and property, has become l
uch acute, President Talt has sent an
but ultimatum to President Madero, which a
ns. is regarded by some as only a few steps
s is short of a declaration of war. After
not the first of January there will be no 1i
of bmding ties of commerce, navigation C
hat or immigration, between this country
in and Russia. It will be remembered
tee that President Taft abrogated last v
,ge spring the treaty of 1832 with Russia, n
get because of Russia's treatment of the
en. Jews. As agitation is dreaded in both di
nc. countries the understanding, here, is p
rey that nothing will be done or said by
ýy. either government to give ground for 81
a protest, until a treaty defining the
Lre relations of the two countries can be
on agreed upon. In the usual course of
he diplomatic proceedure, neither the
Mexican or Russian difficulties can be
ia. settled during the present administra
h. tion. So in addition to the domestic
Lb. questions of trusts and tariff, the new
administration will have to deal with
ed the Mexican and Russian problems and
rs also with the Panama tolls dispute,
in Indeed Mr. Wilson's administration
ae promises to he an eventful one, Mr.
si. Carnegie says that he will have an
opportunity to make for himself an
of immortal name by inaugurating the
^e judicial settlement of our international
wv disputes; and, though himself a Re
id publican, Mr. Carnegie promises his
id earnest support, and that of all peace
in lovers, without regard to party afli.
e Dr. Jones, Noted Evangelist Arrous
y ing Much Interest in Meetings
y at Presbyterian Churcn.
c The two weeks series of meetings J
being held at the Presbyterian church A
e are being well attended and a consider. S
s able amount of interest is being ar- J
s roused by the speaker, Dr. Jones of T
Gulf Port, Mississippi. We speak ad
visedly when we refer to Dr. Jones as
a young man, of seventy years, for E
while Father Time has charged him K
with seventy years, the Doctor wears S
his years so lightly, and retains his C
youthful vigor to such an extent, that P
he could easily pass for a much young- R
er man. Thus combining the vigorous T:
thought and delivery of youth with the St
experience of years, he is a most pow- G
erful speaker carrying conventions to G
the heart of his hearers from start to O.
The meetirg are being well attended,
and a number of other pastors both of
Welsh and surrounding points are as. E.
sisting in the good work by their G.
presence and words of cheer. C.
If you have not been attending these Sr
meetings, you are askel to consider Jr
bhis as a special invitation addressed to Pr
r~ou indivually to come out and hear Tr
)r. Jones. Meetings, are held at 10 RE
jlock in the morning and at 7:30 in St!
e evening. SeI

NEW RECORD IN POLL
. ' TAX PAYMENTS,
rs Over 8.000 Receipts Were Issued For
1912 Which is 1,100 More Than Ever
f (Lake Charles Times)
's Calcasieu parish outstripped all
a* records in the payment of poll taxes
f- this year. The books of the tax col.
.e lector's office showed at the close of
d the office December 31st that over
n 8,464 poll -tax receipts had been issued.
e The exact number could not be ascer
t tained as' there will probabiy be a few
e duplicates, also some that have not
c been counted.
This is 1,100 more poll taxes than
t have ever before been paid in the par
ish and indicates that the people are
I waking up to the importance of being
qualified to vote. The number of poll
1 taxes paid from each of the parishes
Screated out of old Calcasieu will prob.
ably not be determined for several
" days, or until the books are checked

straw, which has recently become con- s
siderable of an industry in this locality.
Mr. Wyatt seemed to be a hard work

a straight young business man. Nor
