With the reimposition Ol the embargo on loe exportation of arm? an?l mUBltloaB of war into Northern Mexico th?* .i?im:rii<t ration hi on the brink of ? rupture with the ? ..rmn/.a govern? ment. Wbeu that rupture occurs tbe WIlaon-Bryan policy of "watchful t**:ntiii-r" will have felled bII along tho lino. The President Mattered himself Bot a little when be described bis programme of the laef thirteen month? as "H?t?-hful waiting." The country is nn?v finding .ml thnt it was "unwat'hful v,aiting"-waiting without any definite end In view and with no adoquine ??reparation for meet lue emer? gencies as they mlpht ??line. The Wilson-Bryan ?policy was doomed from the rery out?"?"! to failure, not alone because it was baaed on illusions and ?ti ladolenl shirking of na? tional duty, it was aa much ?it fault in despising all the normal precautions of ordinary diplomacy. ?ionerai Curranaa'? protest against the American occupation of Vorn Crol h:is caused Hie greatest amazement and consternation In Washington. But it is evident that it could have taken the niliiinls trarion by surprise only bacanas the administration neglected tu inform itself in advance of (ieneral Carran/a's purposes and attitude. It has had ample time and many occasions for comine to a clear un? derstanding with the bead of the Constitntlonallst forces. The administration pal the Northern Revolution on its feet when it lifted Hie embargo on the ex? portation of arms- across ths Mexican border. It did Carranza and Villa a signal favor. Why didn't It insist at thai time on some re<-ipiv.?ul pledges from tbe Constitutionalist leader-'' If the administration was wffling t'> play into their bands they should have been willing to play into its hand. The Beaton incident disclosed tbe fa<'t that there was no dependable understanding between the Con? stitutionalists and President Wilson, (ieneral Car? ranza set up for himself in that matter and blocked the administration's plans. Wasn't that warning enousrh of tbe danger ahead 1 It seems almost be yond belief that, having tbe necessity of a diplo? matic clarification thus borne in upon it. the admin istration should have allowed the embargo suspen? sion t?> stand and should have gone abend blindly trusting in the good Intentions Of Villa and Car? ran/.?. The fondamental aim of the reparation pro? gramme prevented to Congres? un Monday was the detachment of the northern rebels from all con? nection wl'.h the Huerta government. If Mr. WH? IM was not sure that such a detachment could be effected ?'if he had no pledges in advance from Carranza-he was ?-.imply firing in tbe air. His policy was based om-e more on those Illusions which be hag all along substituted for facts in dealing with Mexico. He was merely playing with diplo? macy instea?! of making it a weapon ?>f national offence and defence. He was justifying all that has been said for months al.mit his Inability to take diploma?-y seriously or to appreciate its practical lies in safeguarding the country against ugly complications in foreign relations. If Carranza is to opfu.se this country*? efforts to bring Hnerta's government t?> terms, then the pro? gramme of action directed ?gainst Huerta ahme i* already a failure. Both existing Mexican govern? ments will have to t.o d??alt with, ami that means dealing with all organize?! government in Mexico. The reasoning of the WttSOB BMSSBge to Congress will bave u ha cast aside and the reasoning of the I/Klge preamble will have to be accepted After proceeding ?gata? Mexico for two days on bis own basis the President will have to drop au the illu? sions |o which he has Hung for the last thirteen montbs and WTestiS with the broad underlying problem of general renovation in Mexico. In the In? terest of humanity, order and civilization, to which he ban stubbornly shut his eyes in his dealings Ivnth with Huerta and with Carranza. Hic Secret Pardon fur Reichmann.

Th" best protection which these people can have in the present touchy state of tin- man in th? atn it regarding this general subject of patriotism and up? holding the government is self-control. The crowd, with a certain rough Justice, recognises the parados of tin-?- deriders of government and defiera of law appealing tor the law's protection against tii.it which they themselves stir up. The mauling to which the propagandists have been subjected has been resrettable, but up t.. date not worse than that which Puffrn?rists, orderly a ral law-abiding, have borne many times with equanim? ity, if not with pleasure. It has been BOCb that police interfrrence other than the holding back of the crowds would only have prodnctvl worse condi? tions of disorder. If the Individualists don't like the treatment whlcb their rem.aiks preduce from th?* crowd, their logical remedy Is within themselves, not the police force.
