"Hut we are ?Sealing with farts." exclaim?-?! Pw?. dont WHsOB on Thursday, waving Mida tttA -*>P loftical rhetoric and nettling/Tlth-lsm Of hi? once great and good friend, General Venusttnno Carranza. It was the retort of I Statesman irritated, because taken unawares?of a dealer in unrealities who ??aw ?me more of h;s air cttBtlSS crumbling. Yet how full of tincons? lous irony it was! "Wi> are dealing wit.i facts" It was practically the first BCknos ment from Um White HOOM III thirteen months thai (here were such thiiurs as facts to be dealt frith in the Mexican situation. The President's whole Mexl ?an poll, y has heen based on a shirking of facts and a cultivation of self-created illusions. Mr. Wilson is Rtill extremely reluctant to face the facts of the Mexican situation. On Thursday orders were sent to the Mexican border towns to let no more arms or munitions of war go across into Con? stitutionalist territory. That afternoon Mr. Wilson i-ave out a statement flatly denying the relnipn?dt!.?n of the embargo on arms. The newspapers which printed his statement also printed dispatches from points OB the Kio f.rando about the Interception of shipments of arms under orders from Washington. Later in the events the official announcement e - made thai the embarco had been restored. The necessity for this measure of precaution was clear, yet the President was averse to recognizing it and only pave m formal approval hours after t.ie em barge hty\ been informally re-established. It was the same thin? with the dispatch of troops from OalreetoB to Vaw Cms. The Pr?sident held out against it. He could hardly bring himself t" see that ? re nforcoment of troops at Vers ('ru/, irai essential ?i" emergencies which might easily a ris? were to be met intelligently and with the least i oaalble coal of Ufe to the American column of occu? pation. The President'! attitude is that of i man who, having pot hims??!f into a dtfflculty, looks back ward instead of forward. In a cris:-; like the ,?resent one it is I weakness to look back regret? fully to what ni'ght have been. Tin? right tiling to do is to lo"k ahead?to face the facts and to remem? ber that he who acts swiftly and rigorously in a ? n-.arrel usually acts mercifully. ' It It n?>t "dealing with facts" for President Wilson t" ta:k of further delays for the purpose of seeing what Huerti win do or Cananas win do. Real war M imminent now that it is idle to grasp at the shadow of i successful settlement through measures " short of war." War ?aright have been averted by Intelligent action weeks or months ago. It is too late te tu.n back now. and the whole energy of the Sdmlnlstratloa should be concentrated on making the strmrcrle at hand a?? brief nnd dedslYt SS POS ?Ible. Pace the facts! Spare a waste of Uves and treasure by striking quickly and hard and trying to develop It once the dimensions of the task ahead of us! All ?if our wars have been wasteful because they arers fought slowly and inexpertly at the beginning. I'onditlons are far better now than they were in '.sits, at the outbreak of the war with Spain. We have built a first class navy and have an army quadrupled IB size and efficiency. It is the part Of prudence and mercy to do what we have to do resolutely and promptly. We owe it to foreign nations to determine at once whether we are block? ading Mexfcan ports or not. But we owe it even more to ourselves BOt to blink the realities of our own present relations with Huerta and with Mexico PlBSlieal WHbm IS pretty certain to drop his Illu? sions and deal with n?-tualities.

The Btage ?be has so illuminated with her queenl* Is ?Ide, her rablime I.riinnhilde. her poet Ically enigmatic Kundry, will seem cold Indeed without her when these characters are again es? sayed.
