Wabiiis-otov, June 27. The American
I'liinn Against Militarism issued (o-nlght
n statement, which said In part :
"We are on the point of war, If war
comes the American peoplt. and the other
nations of the world will sit In Judgment
and render a verdict as to the right and
Justice of the cause. Hxery American
who Is patriotic In the highest senst feels
lhat (o go to war without a Just caue
which will bear the critical Judgment of
future generations would be an Irrepara
ble Injury to the nation. Is there a Just
cause for war 7
"It Is coiicedid by the State Depart
ment that up to the Carrlzal engagement
between American and Mexican troop.1
nothing had happened that amounts to
a substantial cnuse for war. As we un
derstand it there la lltlU conlllct of oplti
Ion in regard to this. If we go to war
now It will be understood al home and
abroad that It la because of the shooting
of Capt. Iloyd's troopers by Mexican sol
diers under (Jen. Gomez outside the town
of Carrlxal at about 4 .30 A. M. on
June 20.
"('apt. Morey. wounded and under the
belief that he would not reach the border
alive, has given a clear, cool and dualled
account of this engagement. This report
xvas evidently written with deliberation.
It bears the marks of thoughtful accu
racy and Capt. Morey took pains to put
It Into army code.

"Vou will note that Capt. Murey saya
that Capt. Hoyd was under the Imprea
slon that the Mexicans would run If llred
on and that the Americans then 'formed
for attack' and advanced upon the Mexi
cans and that thereupon the Mexican
troops opened fire. If this Is true and
It seems Impossible to doubt It we sub
mit that the Carrlxal episode does not
constitute a Just cause for war.
"It has been stated that the Carrlxal
engagement was a mere incident, mid
that Carratixa's refusal to allow Amer
ican troops to proceed further Into
Mexico was In Itself a cause of war.
History will not Justify this nation In
going to xvar becaue a neighboring re
public would not allow our troopi to en
ter Its territory In pursuit of a band of
outlaws and demanded that these troops
should not march further Into it terri
tory after the baud of outlaws had been
scattered and many of them killed.
"The fact that Mexico Is a small na
tion, turn by recent revolution and now
undergoing a period of reconstruction,
made It a matter of national honor fiat
we should scrupulously reseet Its right".
Wr believe that If this nation should
iiioor to go to war rather than accept

Yet with deposits of 60,000,000, it ranks as
one of New York's large banking institutions.
The standing of our depositors and their
loyalty through years of mutually profitable
growing.up together is the foundation of our
present strength.
Their comparatively small number enables our
officers to devote to each client the personal
thought and interest to which he is entitled.
Both our staff and our facilities have recently
been enlarged so that we are now prepared
to extend the same quality of personal, interested
service to a somewhat larger circle of clients.
You are invited to make a personal investi

practically no more about how It is

Just as there arr In typhoid Tlir only
xxay to determine this Is lo find Ihr

A Home
Is No Better
Than Its Kitchen
THE same principle ap
plies as in that of a
chain which is no
stronger than its weakest link." The kitchen must be in
keeping with all other parts of the home.
Garbage must not accumulate. A GAS INCINERATOR
burns every bit of garbage, leaving only a fine ash. Uses very
little gas.
Hot water is an essential. It cannot be dispensed with. Cleanli
ness and health demand an unfailing supply of hot water. A
GAS WATER. HEATER supplies as much hot water as you
need at any hour of the day or night.
Sold on Easy Installments
Where coal is used there must be dust, ashes and the bother
of kindlings, and the fire must burn all day and all night. That
means discomfort.
