fRIo Grande, but In these latter days the
Triumph of Reason leads Elthu Root
!? and Henry Clay Creel to talk it calmly
$ over in the diplomatic reception room at
J? the Department of State, and the Attor'7
ney General to instruct the federal law
ji officers in New Mexico to suspend all
2 proceedings and drop the case. Any difX
ferences, however slight, between the
United States and its next-door neighbor
? are to be lamented, but perhaps this one
ft: will serve an important purpose as a
peaceful precedent to show the other
S American republics how easy it Is to preserve
friendly relations during irritating
S circumstances, and settle neighborly disputes
without getting mad over them.
A short time ago, under an order of
. the I'nited Stutes circuit court of New
flf: Mexico, the marshal of that district un?
dertook to e.lect a large number of MexlV
can families from the homes they have
X occupied for many years back on a
muddy Hat lying between the city of El
JF Paso, Texas, and the Rio Grande. The
land they occupy is claimed by the
(t Campbell Real Estate Company of El
^ Paso, which brought suit in the federal
V courts to dispossess the Mexican occnX
pants, who hold it under titles descendIng
from a man named Ponce de Leon, to
*V WhOm it WaS er:int<?H hi' tho Snanloh
9. government many years ago. The circuit
S court took jurisdiction, rendered judgf
ment In favor of the American claimant
th and ordered the United States marshal
JL to execute the Judgment by ejection. The
'I Mexican ambassador reported the matter
v to Secretary Root, and the latter, finding
. that the land in question was involved
Sin a controversy over the boundary line
between Mexico aird the United States,
h requested Attorney General Bonaparte to
X order the district attorney of New Mex ?
ico to intervene for the protection of the
J- interests of the United States and to file
Jfc a bill to enjoin the judgment on the
Jt ground that the court Issuing it has no
y jurisdiction.
i? The Marshal Enjoined.
Attorney General Bonaparte lssnoii ?im
jl necessary instructions, the United States
U: marshal was forbidden to interfere with
jL the settlers, and the question was transferred
from the courts to the Department
X of State, where Secretary Root and the
g- Mexican ambassador are now arranging
for its arbitration. Our courts tan de .
termine county and state boundaries, but
If-' international boundaries are settled by
the diplomatic branches of the governSments
involved. The circuit court of
New Mexico cannot pass on international
^ questions, and went entirely outside its
JF Jurisdiction when it attempted to dis3?
possess actual residents claiming Mexifc
can titles to land which may be a part
y of Mexico or possibly a part of the
At United States?a doubtful matter which
? remains to be decided.
It Is simply a question of fact, and the
9 ownership of the land in dispute can
only be settled when it is dpt?rmino<i
m whether the Rio Grande changed ita
^ course by "accretion" or "erosion."
The Rio Grande is a very uneasy river.
? Sometimes it is a furious torrent: a few
weeks later, its passions having subsided.
it will be only a string- of stagnant
pools lying in a desert of sand.
When the Rio Grande gets on the rampage
in the rainy season, and when the
snows melt on the mountains, it disregards
the maps and surveys and the rules
and regulations that govern international
boundaries, and digs new channels for
Itself wherever it pleases. In 18"J7 the
river ran much further to the north than
it does at present, it ran directly through
the present location of the city of El Paso,
and the greater part of the land occupied
by the homes and business houses
of that thriving place was then in the
republic of Mexico. It was acquired by
the 1'nlted States, not by treaty nor by
conquest, but by the eccentric conduct
of the river, which cut a new channel
several hundred yard* south of the old
Again in 18.V' the Rio Grande, by its ungovernable
passions, took another tract of
territory from the renublic of nn.i
presented It to the United States. The
floods of that season caused it to cut a
new channel south of the old one and. In
course of time, the town was built up to
It. Immediately after this change in the
channel Gen. Emory of our army and Jose
Salazar, representing Mexico, made a survey
and fixed the boundary line between
the two countries as the river was then and
as it stands at present on the maps Be
tween the time of their surveys, in 1852-53
and ISM! the river again changed its course
and cut a new channel still farther south.
This left wide flats of low swampy ground
several square miles In area and valued at
several millions of dollars by the present
occupants, lying between the Emory-Salazar
boundary line, and the city limits of El
Paso and the actual channel of the river.
Marking Boundary With Pillars.
Under the treaties of 1884 and 1889 a Joint
commission was appointrd to locate the
lawful boundary between Mexico and the
T'nlted Statps from Oulf nf Movirrt
the Qulf of California, consisting of Gen.
Anson Mills of the United States army and
Javier Osorno of Mexico, with a siaff of
engineers. They have been at work for
nearly twenty years, and have placed a line
of granite pillars across the continent to
show where United States territory ends
and Mexican territory begins. In doing this
work more than fifty controversies have occurred,
but Gen. Mills and Mr. Osorno. and
his successor, Mr. Puga, have settled them
all amicably except two. One of the two
Is known as the "El Chamtzal" case, and
Involves the tract of land which Is making
the present trouble. The treaty between
the two republics says:
"Article 1. The dividing line shall
follow the center of the normal channel of
the rivers named, notwithstanding any alterations
In the banks or in the courses of
those rivers, provided that such alterations
be effected by natural causes through the
slough and gradual erosion and deposits of
alluvium, and not by the abandonment of
till CAiaiatfi ouu llic U^CIIUlg UL UL
new one.
|M| "Article 2. Any other change wrought by
I the force of the current, whether by the
cutting of a new bed or where there Is
more than one channel by the deepening of
another channel than that which marks the
boundary at the time of the survey made
under the aforesaid treaty, shall produce
no change In the dividing line as fixed by
the surveys of the international boundary
commissions in 1852; but the line then fixed
shall continue to follow the middle of the
original channel bed, even should this become
wholly dry, or be obstructed by deposits."
The Question at Issue.
3| There Is no question, and, indeed, It is
91 conceded on both sides, that the channel
jj; of the river has changed since the surveys
c; of 1852 and that the land now In dispute
JJ was a part of the republic of Mexico at
that date. Having admitted this, the question
to be arbitrated is whether or not the
er river In its passage moved the disputed
land over from one republic to the other
by gradual erosion from the Mexican shore
m and deposited It on the United States
lit shore, or whether the present channel was
^ cut suddenly by the violence of its current.
* In the former case the present channel
through which it flow? is the legal bound

ary, and the land in question belongs to
the United States. In the latter ease the
present boundary is that fixed by Gen.
Emory and Mr. Salazar in 1853, and all the i
territory on the other side of the old dry
channel and the land in question belongs
to Mexico.
Gen. Mills holds that the change in the
river is the result of accretion, and has I
taken place slowly and gradually during a
generation. The Mexicans assert that the
channel was changed by violence of floods
in 1863 and 1804, and submit affidavits from '
a long procession of the oldest Inhabitants
to sustain their contention. It is represented 1
that the flood of 1864 was the most terri- l
ble and destructive that has ever been i
known in me vaiiey, uuu ueauu>eu uccd,
crops and houses. The current was so
strong as to destroy the jetties constructed
to protect the bank on the Mexican side
and to cut a new channel south of the old
one so rapidly that people had te fly In the
night to escape the waters; th* It swept
off houses and everything else without giving
time for the occupants to save their
personal effects. Nearly all of the Inhaoitants
in that locality In 1804 were Mexicans.
Very tefh, if any. of the present resident
Americans of El Paso wore there at that
time. The town was of no importance. It
was only a small settlement outside the
military reservations at Fort Bliss, so that
the arbitrators who are to settle the dispute
will have to depend upon Mexican testimony.

the liberal politician!), and is so virtuous in
his political views and methods.
Gov. Magoon was sent to Havana because
of his genius as a conciliator. On a
house In the west end of Washington is a
sign reading:
Mental Sugge3tlon."
It might properly be hung over the marble
entrance to the palace at Havana, for
that is precisely the remedy adopted by
Qov. Magoon in his treatment of the political
disorders of the Cubans. He hears
everybody who has a demand or a recommendation
to make. He listens as eagerly
as If it were the most important Interview
of his life, and when the caller has finished
speaking the governor grasps him by
the hand, thanks him for the privilege of
meeting him ?nd dismisses him with the
heartiest cordiality.
When a delegation of cutthroats and
swashbucklers calls to threaten disaster
and destruction unless their demands are
complied with Gov. Magoon sits In his
chair as serenely as the sunflower he is
said to resemble. He reminds you of the
old nursery rhyme:
"There wn? a vourc man who Mid how
Shall I '<* ' 111>>' from that terrllile row7
If I >it on a utile
And continnr to aiirilF.
It may soften the heart of the row."
And It often does. By wearing a smile
like a Christmas tree, and saying nothing
the governor avoids controversies and commits
himself to nothing.
The politicians of Havan declare that lie
Is simply a puppet, a figurehead, a mask
for the Secretary of War and the President
of the United States; that he has no authority
or power, and cannot decide any
question or gtvi? a definite answer t6 anybody
on any subject, and it Is asserted that
he is losing the respect and confidence of
the public for that reason.
While It is undoubtedly true that Qov.

Magoon is expected to pass up to Washington
all serious questions of policy, he has a
great deal more authority than he Is willing
to exercise, and It is a part of his administrative
policy to avoid committing
himself on matters In controversy. He inistpones
-his reply to forty requests and inquiries
fo every one he grants or answer*.
He postpones all controversial and troublesome
questions. He steers around all
rocks, doubtless hoping that things will settle
themselves if they are given a chance.
The Spanish race Is supposed to postpone
until tomorrow everything It is not compelled
to do today, and Gov. Magoon has
