The Border Trouble
ROM all appearances, Mexico is not going to have any more trouble on elec
tion day, next Sunday, than -we have in the United States on any general
election day, hut just the same preparations are being made for it if it
Diaz is never caught napping. A Mexican border official probably sized up
the present trouble just about right when he said that it all comes from a lot of
discontents on the border, who woruld like to start some excitement to get a chance
to pillage and rob. There are probably a few political fanatics among the discon
tents who are really serious in their loyalty to Madero and opposition to Diaz for
president, who would not hesitate to'use arms to vent their feelings, but these are
few and can well be taken care of. The Mexican government discovered the plans
of these trouble makers in ample time to take everyj precaution and if there is any
disturbance of any character, it will be of short duration. There is hardly any
likelihood of trouble, however.
Mexican officials and troops have arrested a number of political leaders in. sev
eral points in the republic; have in several instances seized rifles and ammunition
which had been smuggled into the country; have broken up a number of "opposi- N
tion" meetings; have forced many of the unusually active "opposition" leaders
out of the country; have jailed Madero, the opposition candidate for president;
have been actively moving soldiers from point to point, and have carefully dis
tribute rurales all along the Sonora-Arizona line; also that Naco, Sonora, officials
got frightened ana sought refuge and protection under Arizona officials until Mexi
can troops could reach them.
All these things have happened; that they should be chronicled in the news
papers, nobody of serious mind will contend to the contrary. A newspaper's first
runction is to print the truth; when it chronicles movements such as are enumer
ated above, it is doing its duty" to its readers, and a paper which refuses to do so
is not fulfilling its duty to the people who depend, even in a small way,, on it for
information. The Douglas International is not in the wrong when it declares its
right and duty to print such news as develops, especially when the news is known
to many in the community anyhow.
The Mexican officials themselves have made all the news that the border
papers have printed so far; when they sought protection in Arizona, under Arizona
guards, from fancied assassins and robbers, they created a situation that forced
the newspapers to give the news; when they sent troops and rurales to guard duty
there and when they increased the military at Cananea after manyf arrests had
been made and ammunition had been captured, they once more created the news.
It is the duty of a newspaper to give this news.
The Herald has faithfully chronicled all these events, many of them at con
siderable expense and trouble, and has covered the situation more fully than any
other paper. Editorially The Herald has expressed its belief daily that there was
no cause for alarm. It expresses this belief again; Americans in Sonora express
the same belief, but the Mexican officials are evidently not so confident. They
are making too much news by their activities.
It seems that the Chicago judge only turned loose his legal grip on the beef

American Depravity In Cuba
BULL fighting and cock fighting have nothing to do with sport, except that
they result in prohibition of sport. So, the future of Cuba in that regard
appears very unfortunate in view of a recent development.
A bill granting a 30 year concession for bull fighting, cock fighting, horse racing
and general gambling was granted "Wednesday by the Cuban house of representa
tives. And the worst of it is that the reservation, located at Buena Vista, a suburb
of Havana, will be operated by an American company.
Think of it! Americans 'promoting such "amusements" for the depravity of
already unfortunate people. It is true that if bull fighting were an Anglo-Saxon
sport, instead of a Latin one, we might have the institution today in America.
For, after aD, man is not so different. It is the institution which is to blame, not
always the man.
For many years bull fighting has been prohibited in the Argentine republic.
Originallyi it was quite as firmly rooted there as in Mexico. But the Argentine of
today is interested in all varieties of sport, baseball, cricket and golf. He has for
gotten the bull fight of his ancestors, the Spanish, and considers the bull fight
the most depraving of things. Why? Because he is an athlete, and believes in
English fair play.
If Vie protectorate of Cuba hy the United States has brought no better things
than bull fighting, cock fighting and a national lottery it is time to protectorate a
little all over again. It is alleged that the lottery concession was granted under
American military rule. No matter, whether or not, it was granted!
It is not the Cuban's fault that he has bull fights any more than it is the
Mexican's. Bull fights are not like baseball leagues. The bull ring usually is

What does it matter to the Cuban if he is depraved by a Spanish bull fight,
or an American bull fight; if he is robbed by a Spanish lottery or an American
lottery? Civilization is not an empty title. Liberty is not a tool of graft.

He should be firm, too, and know his business, for he will be called upon many
times to grant favors to friends, political and otherwise, when his duty will be to
turn a deaf ear and enforce the law. ThereWould be not only less danger from
fires, but fewer fires, if; the back yards of business houses were cleaned up and
kept clean. Then, it is just as well to have a thorough investigation of every fire
to ascertain the cause. There is much work for a fire marshal and the position

The El Paso chamber of commerce is
advocating the running of trade excur

that it Js necessary to run excursions
out of El Paso. What they are after
is business. The El Paso Herald advo
cates the running of excursions as is
the custom between Bisbee, Douglas
and Cananea, and thinks that it would
be advisable for the Pass City bovs to
come out to the biggest copper camp
on earth. They are right. Anv ex

vertise the town and would be an in
ducement for the rest of the cities to
reciprocate by sending excursionists to

to have everybody flocking to that

completed The speed with which
words could be transmitted across the
cables was at first from three to eight
a minute. This was finally increased
to fifteen. Since that time there have
been great strides in this direction. In
1S74 the duplex system was applied In
creasing the speed 50 per cent. Now
it is not an extraordinary feat to
send 200 words a minute.

Manufactured In England.
Cables are manufactured prlncipally
in England where factories are able to
turn out from 20 to 30 miles a day. The
cores of the newest cables are cqmposed
Of 13 copper wires, with 12 slighter ones
wound round them forming a core one
quarter of an inch in diameter. This is
surrounded with a skin of gutta percha
and other nonconducting material in
creasing the diameter to three-quarters
of an inch. After a casing of hemp and
canvas tape there Is an armour shield
of steel wires with every Interstice
filled with an asphaltlc composition.
The cables are stored until needed in
groat tanks filled with sea water in
lengths of from two to 200 miles. The
shore ends of cables are often as large
as a man's leg.
Many Ships U5ed In Work.
More than 50 ships are devoted ex
clusively to the work of laying and re
pairing cables. The repairs are fre
quently very expensive undertakings.
The point of trouble can be located by
a peculiarly delicate dynamometer
which is operated on the principle of
measuring the resistance offered per
lineal mile of cable. Often the calcu
lations are so accurate that a ship will
anchor within a thousand feet of the
point where the trouble lies. But oc
casionally great difficulty is encoun
tered. In 1900, 'for example, $300,000
was expended in a fruitless effort to re
pair one of the Atlantic cables. The life
of the average cable Is from 20 to 30
