TUTOR HAD HER SUSPICIONS!
Gift of Roses From Tony Called for
Searching Inquiry, and Truth
Public school teachers in the Italian
quarter are constant recipients of gifts
from admiring scholars. When the in
trinsic value of an offering is beyond a
certain limit, and they vary all the
way from ripe tomatoes to bits of
jewelry, the teacher "usually institutes
an inquiry as to its original source.
One boy made frequent gifts of flow
ers. As long as they were somewhat
faded the teacher accepted them un
questionably, but when Tony turned
Up one morning with a large bunch of
expensive white roses she felt con
strained to ask the boy where ha got
them. Heaven and earth were called
upon to witness that the flowers had
been purchased, later that they had
been a gift, and finally Tony's mother
had sent them aa a token of her re-,-gard.
The teacher grew more stern
fin her demand for particulars in re
gard to Tony's flowers there was a

".Tony," she said, "tell me the truth.
Where did you get those flowers?"
"Teacher," said Tony, at the end ot

All will agree that President
Wilson has obeyed the .command
of the Master very literally. The
purpose of the command was, to
set an example of lorbearsnce
whicn should produce moral effect.
It can hardly be supposed that for
bearance should be persisted in,
if tne aggressor was incapable of
appreciating the example.
Forbearance with Mexico has
ceased to be a virtue. The other
cheek has been turned, but the
onl' result has been to incite to
further outrage. President Wilson
has, therefore, in the Jast - note to
the de facto government of Mex
ico made it plain that, the punitive
American forces will not be with
drawn from Mexican soil until
there is a sufficient guarantee that
the situation can be handled by
the Carranza forces and, if this
means war, let it come.
The latest news from the bor

that hostilities have begun. Ap

Every republican office-seeker,
and their number is legion,
will pray very earnestly that the
European war may be ended
speedily. In fact, the European
war may be the ruination of the
republican party and the chance
1 for republican office-seekers to
feed at the public crib.
The European war is the great
ally of Democracy, if republicans
may be believed. They had pre
dicted calamity as the result of
democratic success in 1912. Cal
amity has not come. The. war
is the reason, sathe, republic
ans. ; " ' ; " ' ;
The European war has brought
prosperity to American indust
ries and increased the revenues
of government. The U. S. treas
ury is full.
Too bad, too bad! Lay it to
the war, if you want to, breth
ren. That's your theory but
the condition is very satisfact
Voters Will Take No Chances
There is no reason to doubt
that were Mr. Hughe3 elected
to the presidency, he would fill
the office as well as most of the
republican presidents of the
past. We do not believe, how
ever, that the American voters
are going to take any chances on
a new man at this critical time
in our history,
With preparedness under way,
with unprecedented prosperity
here,' with peace abiding with
us, who is going to give expres
sion to his propensity to knock
by risking a condition which Mr.
W)lson will continue but which
another, even Hughes, would
very likely change for the worse.
Mr. Hnghes had a perfect
right to resign his office to ac
cept the republican nomination
for president, but a great many
people will think that a man
should not accept that high office
unless he is temperamentally
fitted for it and means to hold it
as long as he lives.
The nearer we get to a non
partisan tariff commission the
less favorable will republicans
be to it. A commission of that
kind might swat high protective

WHO STARTED IT?
Williams, Arizona, June 20th.,
Editor Williams News,
In its issue of the 17th instant

Republican, a relic of that vali
ant volunteer force that fought
the Battle of Armageddon under
the banner of social justice, but
which is at present enlisted be
neath the standard of the Plum
Tree Brigade, headed by that
quartet of eminent social reform
ers, Penrose, Crane, Root and
Smoot, is worried over the pros
pect of the unenlightened Dem
ocratic press of the country
making an issue out of Mr.
Hughes' resignation from the
United States Supreme Court to
accept a Republican nomination,
for the Presidency.
Unmindful of the fact that
over a ypar ago in a letter to the
Governor of New Jersey, Mr.
Hughes, himself, stated in effect
that it would be unbecoming in
him, a Justice of the Supreme
Court of the United States, to
drag the judicial ermine of sach
a tribunal into the dust and mire
of American politics by either
seeking or accepting a political
nomination for the Presidency,
the Republican appears to think
the Democratic press will place
the Democratic party at a "dis-
advantage" by calling attention
to that which Mr. Hughes, him':
self, admitted. . - v;
While I am' duly appreciative
of the Republican's" solicitude in
this mater, riever-the-less I feel
constrained to ask who started
this Argument; ' anyway?' The
man who first raised this issue
in the present ' -campaign ' was
Joseph H. Chbate, former Am
bassador to England, a Repub
lican of the very highest mental,
diplomatic and professional rank.
It was on April 10th, 1916, that
Mr. Choate speaking upon this
subject said J "It should be re
garded as a fatal drawback to
Justice Hughes' nomination that
he is a Justice of the Supreme
Court, a court which must be
kept forever inviolate from with

Appertaining to the celerity
with which a Justice of the Su

especially after having admitted
the impropriety of the act, I will

time during the present cam
paign wil' the reading public en
