Deal with the Facts!
"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. In Ids reply to ?Car
raaa_ bS Said: "Wherever and whenever the dignity
ef the United Bfates Is touted, Ita International
rights or the rights ..f its dttsens Invaded, or its in
Nuance rebuffed where it has the rieht to attempt

Mme. Fremsted'i Farewell.
it is not often thai the local, and let us hope
temporary, passing of a singer brings forth a
demonstration as aimeere and n< spontaneous as
that accorded to Mme. olive Fremstad at the Met
ropolltan Opera House on Thursday alght Mme.
Premstnd Is nol to return to the Metropolitan next
year. 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. Perhaps Mr. Qatti-Casasza will be able lo
And a worthy sin-.v^or. though at present this

not Ihe singer who sang her inst Bias on Thursday
night will to many local patrons of opera form one

Olive Fremstad already .-it? it. the hall ?>f fame

s! e was the very embodiment ol the great master's
tlon Poetic tire, beauty, plastic grace, sii
preme skill in song wen? ben, even if her rolec was
? ? df the great organs of all time Like all
great artists, she was never satisfied with her own
enactments, and from the nlghl she first stepped
upon tbe Metropolitan stage there was s continual
advancement in her art Above all, she was abso?
lutely sincere. No higher <.r truer artistic epitaph
COUld she have than lier own-words of farewell, tin?
first she ??ver uttered in pul.lie : "Jiejir friends, I
bave always tried to trtve you of my beat" -my eery
best."
A False Prophet of Peace.

peace, Mr. Bryan. The subject lias been his fa?
rorite topic on th<* Chautauqna platform, the re?

not only finds himself part and parcel of a great
war. but held largely responsible therefor and
blamed bitterlj by friends and enemies alike,
No criticism can ?nit Mr. Bryan's sensibilities
deeper than the scathing words <>f Mr. Norman
iiiteriiati.inal peace advocate Mr.
Angel? lias made some especially interesting contri?
butions to the economic aspects of the question. He
now feels Impelled to point oui that the type <>f
pacifism which Mr. Bryan has represented must al?
fa |] aji.i must always .i?. barm to the can.-?? <>f

day, yet i <?<i remain calm at realizing it, and went
to play at tennis with li. Broun and bad good link
enough to "?n. in tl"1 afternoon i did meet again
Mistress Ann Wit;,ins, Bnd she teemed even more
beautiful than the first time i ta*? her, and sin- said,
How now, Mr. Pepya, you bare nld things of my
beauty, whicb publlck notice I do not like ?So I
promised her i should say nought, but thinking ag iln
.?n it i deemed it my duty to the rest of the world to
mention it But hereafter i shall stay mute. By Bt
Dunstan! there be many that would hin bare their
beauty spoke of, yet gain no fame at all : ami thus,.
that hare the charnu do grow wroth at the mention
of them. So runs the world away.
?_'i ip betimes and with a. Gulterman the poel to
the court, and I did beul bim one sett, and grew so
vainglorious that I ?lui lose ?the next three; and then
we beat Mr. Thwaltea and Mr. Stagg i sett and they
us two; a poor ?lay ?is pip Binning, yet i did enjoy it
highly. To the office then and came .lohn Beed and
told me more of affairs and conditions in Mexico,
moatly ?if villa, ami \oiy Interesting, too. n<- seid
that Villa should be assured that there are many In
tliis land that arc opposed to any war. as indeed an?
all i know; wherefore then he might not join wjih
