SENATOR FALL SAYS

New Mexico Senator on Mexico Investigating Committee

WASHINGTON, D. C, Aug. 13. Mex
ico is to be investigated from the
time of the overthrow of Diaz to the
present time, and every phase of our
relations with the southern republic
in the Interim is to be thoroughly
studied by a. subcommittee of the sen
ate foreign relations committee. But
any preconceived notion that the com
mittee wishes to see armed interven
tion or that It enters upon its task
with prejudiced Judgment Is errone
ous. This is what senator Albert B.
Fall, of New Mexico, chairman of the
investigating committee, told me to
Senator Fall wants the inquiry to
be of constructive value and wants
to enlighten the American neoole on
the real difficulties below the Rio
urande. when the investigation is
finished, recommendations will be
made. If results can be obtained
without the use of force, that will be
advocated. But the spirit and temper
of the members of the committee are
such that they want to see the lives
ana property or American citizens pro
tected and secured at any cost.
Tain Is the cardinal point of
protection of Americans abroad,
and the Investigation Is calculated
to have as ranch effect In Mexico
as In other Latin American coun
tries, snch as Colombia, where a
tendency to abridge: American oil
lights has already caused the sen
ate to postpone action on the
Indeed, the announcement that the
Republican party has determined upon
a thorough investigation of foreign
affairs and that special stress is be
ing placed upon the Mexican situa
tion has stirred up interest through
out Latin America.
Editor Sends Inquiry.

Falavanci was recently decorated by
Great Britain for his services to the
allies. His telegram, addressed to
senator A. B. Fall, of New Mexico;
Mark Smith, of Arizona, and Brande
gee. of Connecticut, follows:
"El Universal, the newspaper which
defended the allied cause in the last
war and tbe one important Mexican
daily which declared openly its friend

that vou form part of the committee
for investigating Mexican affairs, re
quests that you kindly state If you be
lieve at the present time that the best
means for protecting foreign inter-;
ests in Mexico Is that of armed in
tervention, which, because of tbe dif
ference in strength between the coun
tries would constitute an invasion sim
ilar to that or Belgium by the Ger
mans. The known friendship of Rl
Universal for the people and with the
government of the United States leads
it to believe that you win grant this
request for a detailed statement of
i our views.
Immediately after the receipt of
this message, the senate sub-clmmlt-
tee held a meeting at the capitol and !
sent tne xoxiowing answer:

to that of Belgium by the Germans

IT IS the nap of Europe as it looks since the surge of battle has subsided,
since the nations of the world have gathered in conclave and arrived at
what they hope will be a permanent peace.
The old picture of Europe which was stamped in the public mind in its
days of school attendance, is a thing of the past In its place there is a
new Europe. Ihe old picture must be eradicated and the new one given
its place. That this may be accomplished get the map of the mother conti

conspicuous place in the living room at home. Your eye will subconsciously
run over it now and again until it is thoroughly fixed in your mind. Thus

Strike Of New York Actors Spreads
To Chorus;ActorsBreak Two- Week
George Cohan And Other
Managers Take rlaces Or
Their Actors On Stage.
TVTEW YORK, Aug. M. While tbe
IN strike of actors has spread toChl-
cago, managers have taken steps to
sue the organization for breach of
contract and to ask for Injunctions to
prevent strikes In Boston. Philadel
phia and other places.
In a meeting at the Hotel Astor. the
producing managers adopted a resolu
tion placing themselves on record as
not opposed to organized labor. This
Is believed to have been dictated by
managerial apprehension lest the me
chanical trades of the theaters vote
a srxnnathetlc strike. The producers
also directed Bain bridge Colby, their
counsel, to sue the Actors' Equity as
sociation and the Individual strikers
Contracts Are Broken.
The managers claim that most of
the strikers already had signed the
contract devised by their union, which
document is one of the things they
contend for in the strike. Under the
articles each party Is required to give
two weeks notice of the termination
of an engagement, a clause insisted
upon by the actor for their own pro
tection, which the producers will now
endeavor to invoke against them.
As matters stand the producers and
vaudeville managers are arrayed
against the . union with powerful
promises. For one thing the "faith
ful" actors are promised that forever
and ever and ever and then some
the grateful producers will provide
them with golden engagements.

ASHINGTON, D. CL Aug. 13. In
the discussion now going for
ward over the treaty of Versailles
there Is one Une of attack being made
upon the president by the bo called and
self styled "liberals" which is at one
time unfounded and mendacious. It Is
solemnly asserted that the president
had but to stamp his foot and the vast
millions of organized Socialists of the
continent would have come to his as
sistance and that. Instead of accept
ing the role of leader of the European
Left, he permitted himself to become
the tool of the reactionary Right.
Now the fact Is this:
It I" true that the Socialist, of
the continent and their relatively
paler shadow In England were
perfectly ready to accept Sir. Wil
son leadership when he came to
Europe, but on one condition,
namely, that he lead them a gal nut

be made, that is, they were not eager
to contribute to making this treaty a
Just thing. On the contrary, they
were eager that Lloyd George. Cle
menceau and Orlando should make a
bad treaty, which would weaken the
prestige of the order they represented.
It is Just as easy to believe that pres

The Socialists of France were at

Republicans were at war with the

that while Republicans and Demo

agreed to preserve our essential Insti

trol of the machinery of government,
the Socialists of France are seeking
to destroy the form of government
and substitute a wholly mrierent ma

This feeling is due in part to the

fact that American magazines, and.
