What the United States will have
achieved by stopping In at Vera Cruz
first and Mexico City second, may he
forever a matter of differing opinion.
The future unquestionably holds many
hours of furious oratory on the point,
when tlie Mexican situation und Amer
ican action come up for review in po
litical campaigns. Some will proclaim
Vera (*ruz a placo of martyrdom for
Justice's sake, while other just as loud
ly will rall against the needless waste
of precious Anglo Saxon blood. That
tho flag has been avenged of insult, or
that it has been dragged in the mire,
the one doctrine or the other will be
preached os- politics decrees.
Dut, conceding that the mediation is
to be successful, it would appear that
little transformation has been
wrought, unless the United States bur
dens itself as a Mexican godfather.
By establishing a provisional govern
ment along the lines laid down at Ni
agara Falls, a Carranza man goes In
to power and a strong Imagination ls
required to figure out any other con
dition that actual Mexican government
by Carranza, Villa and other Hebel re
cords. Therefore, after all. Unete
Sam will have interposed to hasten che
inevitable. The Rebels were winning
and Huerta was being eliminated and

of him. tn all llkllnood.
Results of American interference,
Judged from the material standpoint
and without consideration of the good
done in upholding tho Stars and

Wo seo no occasion for excitement
over the dispensary proposition. This
paper has opposed the holding of an

the outcome is a foregone conclusion
In favor of no dispensary, and to have

However we feel sure that Supervi
sor King means to do what is right.
He feels the responsibility placed up
on.his shoulders and he wishes to have
the petitions checked over by men
whom he can truBt. and who have the
confidence of the public.
It is unfortunate if he and Mr. Har
ley had any misunderstanding about
the personnel of the membership of
the committee to check over the lists,
and We are convinced that Mr. Harley
felt that he had grounds for thinking
that he was to have representation on
thc committee, or-that he would have
been notified to th? contrary. But
that ls a matter entirely in the prero
gative of the supervisor, and wo be

Confiding in that statement, we feet
that Mr. King will not order the elec

first verse In the llrst Psalm. Did you
ever stop to consider what a world of
wisdom there ls In that one verse? If
David had written Just that one verse
and had stopped he would have oben

And there are other Psalms precious
to memory because of the associations
of those days, and there are the Prov

Scripture which might have been
shorn of their interest unless it had
been for the manner in which they
were read in the old school house.
