It was only a little more than half a cen tury ago that Mexico was the scene of very much the same character of revolution that exists in that country today. Maximilian accepted the throne of Mexico in an evil hour. It was not his own wish that he should become the ruler of a country with which he had no sympathy whatever, but his am bitious wife goaded him on, picturing to him the honors and riches that would come to them. Instead, what a sad state. Maximilian lost his life and Charlotte went mad. AVlum the French army had virtually conquered Mexico the people agreed to adopt a monarchial form of government under a Catholic prince, who should take the title of emperor, and Napoleon offered the Mexican crown to Maxi milian. His brother, the emperor of Austria, was strongly opposed to his accepting the offer, but the influence of his wife was too strong to over come the objections. All the difficul ties and dangers were pointed out to them, but Charlotte scorned the counsel of the timid. With eharactertistic self-confidence, she was certain that she could direct her husband, placate bis enemies and establish his rule in .Mexico. Maximilian felt reluctant to mount a throne which sat over the crater of a volcano. However, the new emperor and his wife entered the capital on the 12th of June, 1S64. No sooner was he seated on the throne than the clergy, a large and official body, maintained that he should restore to them their im mense properties which previous gov ernment had confiscated. He found it impossible to comply, and the clergy used their power to weaken the rule of the sovereign. finally, when things had become In a turbulent state. Napoleon sent a spe cial messenger to Maximilian stating that he was no longer able to support him and advised him to return to Europe. Charlotte begged him not to sign the abdiction. and she started for Europe to talk over the matter with Napoleon. The scene with the em peror was an exciting one, and her troubles preyed so upon her mind that she became insane. News of the madness of Charlotte came as a crushing blow to her affec tionate husband, who, harassed on all sides, ill anil despondent, decided to leave the scene of his troubles. When the French army had withdrawn In March, 1S6-7, the emneror issued a man ifesto and rallying some S000 men around him, placed himself at their head and prepared to fight the Repub lican army. On the night of May 14 he was be trayed by one of his generals. Miguel Lopez, who admitted the republicans into the city of Queretaro. Opportunl ties were piven him to escape but he refused, preferring to surrender his sword with dignity. Two of his gen erals, M'ramon and Mejia were also taken prisoners.

A day later the plot to smuggle Max imilian away was discovered and its principal promoter. Phince Salin-Salm was threatened with being shot. The trial of the emperor by court-martial took place on June 13 in the Iturbide Theater, at Vueretaro, which was dec orated with flags as if for a festival. The judges were six young captains, several of whom could neither read nor write, pn sided over by Lieutenant Co lonel Plato Sanchez. Knowing that the trial would be a mockery of justice the emperor retused to be present, and while it was preceding passed the tims alone in his cell in reading the history of Charles I or England. Three of his judges voted for the banishment of Maximilian, and three for his execution, the casting vote, which led to the execution, being given by the presiding officer, who later on was shot by his own men. Neither the emperor nor his friends, with one or two exceptions, believed that the sen tence would be carried out. But the Mexicans of the sixties were as today, blood-thirsty, and nothing would satisfy them but the death of the emperor, who was shot on June 16, 1SC7.

The devotional exercises were con ducted by Mrs. La Chance. An im portant business session followed. The program under the direction of Vs. Wing, among other things con sisted of articles read by various members. The president read the following encouraging extract from The Vindicator." Drops Liquor Advertising Chica go Record-Herald Closes Its Columns to the Makers and Sellers of Alco holic Drinks. Chicago, April 6. Yesterday morn ing the people of Chicago who read the Record-Herald had a very de cided surprise presented them in a big triple-column announcement which appeared on that paper's first page, telling its readers that, while it will carry out contracts already maue, the Kccoril-Herald, which as ill the world knows, is one of America's greatest dailies, will never again enter into contract for ad vertising alcoholic liquors. The announcement reads: "The Record-Herald has decided to elimi nate liquor advertising from its columns. t will fulfil its existing contracts to print this class of ad vertising and, having done that, it will accept no more." The Record-Herald does not deny the view that pure alcoholic liquors have their wise and proper use in individual instances, hut contends that the responsibility for the ad vocacy of such use should rest with the family physician rather than the family newspaper and declines henceforth to share this responsi bility." Another encouraging announcement read was that the women's vote in the last Illinois local option election closed 1000 saloons. Mrs. La Chance announced that Mrs. Grady Gammige of Tucson will visit Phoenix on May 6 and 7 and a reception will be tendered her at the W. C. T. U. on Tuesday afternoon. Further announcement regarding this and the public meeting which she will address will be given through the press. MORE ROOM FOR CLEANLINESS To the Editor of The Republican, Sir: I noticed an article in your paper yesterday morning commend ing the city of Phoenix for having cleaned up and stating that it is hoped that it will continue to keep clean. It must be that the writer of this article did not take the trouble to walk through some of the alleys and look into the back yards. If he bad he certainly would not congratu late Phoenix on having made a clean up. Your valuable paper can do a good deal toward making a cleaner city of Phoenix, but to make the statement at present that the town is clean Is a huge joke. I trust your paper will keep up a campaign whb- will result in giving Phoenix a good clean-up, remove some of the manure piles of ten years' standing and urge the (leaning up of vacant lots that have been used as a ; dump ground for a number of years. , To find these conditions it will not be neces sary to go more than two blocks away from the post f fire, the center of Phoenix.

A I campaign in tavor or a constitutional amendment will be shortly instituted, i This like all other important ques- tions has two sides, on each of which are found honest and intelligent per sons. The Republican has decided to pro vide for a reasonable discussion of this issue in its pages, allowing to each side at least a half column daily for signed articles, for which there will be no charge. No anonymous article will be published. It Is only stipulated that the com nunications for and against prohihl- THE ROAD TO WRECKS Rufus Steele, in an illuminating ar ticle in the Saturday Evening Post under the title, "Keeping John Bar leycorn Off the Train," tells tin story of wreck and disaster caused bv drink.

Is it any wonder that they are compelled to resort to a sort of supervision or spy system to ascertain whether their men live up to the requirements or not? With saloons on every hand to tempt their employes from the path of abstinence and sobriety the task of these cor porations is made doubly difficult and the public, in whose interest and behalf these spy systems are con ducted, are so little concerned that You'll be prouder than ever of your woodwork when you clean it with It quickly and grease, 5c "Lmt th 00 RED MAN Just the Collar You've Wanted 2 FOR 25 CTS.

It will not be long before alcohol will be the motive power of automo biles, but the alcohol will have to be in the tank of the machine instead of where it is now, in the tank of the chauffeur.

J Rule "G" of the book of ru-fi-s i adopted by the American Railroad association reads as follows: "The llse of intoxicants by employes while on duty is prohibited. Their use, or the frequenting of places where they are sold, is sufficient cause for dis missal.' But do you question the right of the railroad company to enquire into the personal habits of its men.' If you do, forget it. They have an ab solute right to know the comings and goings of their employes so far as it relates to their occupation. That is a right preservative. Efficiency Is a requirement of any business, and efficiency and alcoholic liquors are enemies. Henry Ford, the great j manufacturer and philanthropist, says: "It is our business to s'-e that they ( the employes) spend their money right. That applies not only to the men out there in the shop, but to everyone in this organization all th" way up to the top. We have stopped some of our highest paid men from spending money improperly." j Henry Ford is right.
