J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. .'>-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the poetofflce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Q?e year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mall 5.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 AMBASSADOR WILSON INVOLVED IN MEXICO'S TRAGEDY. SUSPICIONS of foul play in connection with the death of Ma dero do not disappear as we hear more of the details sur rounding the tragedy. The correspondents of American pa pers who were in Mexico City during the ten days' fighting there that resulted in the downfall and final death of the President and the ascending of his eading general ofter the latter had arrest ed his chief and forced his resignation, are returning home where they can talk without the interference of government censorship. They are telling weird tales of mysterious doings, and, regret table though it is, they do not hesitate to involve the American ambassador. Henry Lane Wilson. They openly and unhesitatingly accuse him of intriguing with the men who betrayed Madero, and with plotting his downfall. They accuse him of having previous knowledge of the plan to have Madero's army turn upon him, and some of them go so far as to accuse him of suggesting the plan. So much have these newspaper men said that the New York World openly accusses Wilson of being the arch conspirator in the Mexican tragedy. Here is the World's arraignment of Ambassador Wilson: "That Ambassador Wilson threw the whole influence of the' American Government into the balance against Madero. "That he gave encouragement and indirect aid to the trai torous Mexican Generals so openly as to constitute the most per nicious form of diplomatic meddling. "That he used other foreign diplomats as his facile instru ments in attempting to coerce Madero to resign. "That he either possessed advance information of the plot of Huerta and Blanquet to turn traitors to Madero or displayed amazing prescience in his official dispatches predicting Madero's downfall the night before it occurred. "That Huerta was in frequent conference with the American Ambassador before the Palace coup d'etat. "That news of the success of the blow was conveyed by the Ambassador's message to Felix Diaz with the suggestion that Huerta and Diaz should come to terms. "That Diaz, distrustful of Huerta, insisted upon an Ameri can escort and protection of the American flag on his trip to confer with Huerta in the Embassy. "That Ambassador Wilson, brusque, arrogant and unsym pathetic with the Mexicans, was for months openly hostile to Madero and an avowed partisan of Felix Diaz. "That without the encouragement and approval of the Amer ican Ambassador Huerta never would have turned traitor and that Madero never would have been defeated without outside in terference. "That Ambassador Wilson's prompt recommendation that the United States recognize the new government was precipitate and undiplomatic. "That his haste to seal with his approval the weird official explanations of the execution of the Maderos and Pino Suarez has further perjudiced Mexicans against Americans." The consternation that the Turkish warship Hamideah is creating in the Agean sea reminds one of the scare the Merimac created in the North before she met Ericcson's Monitor at Hampton Roads. THE SETTING OF AN EXAMPLE THE action of the European powers in following the lead of President Wilson and permitting China to manage her own financial affairs is an exemplification of the old truisms that we used to hear about the value of a good example. The United States has set many examples since it set up in business about seven score years ago that have improved things immensely. The woman suffrage bill, signed yesterday by Gov. Walter E. Clark, will become the law of the land in ninety days. It contained no emergency clause, so cannot become effective until the elapse of the time prescribed in the organic act. The women, therefore, will exercise their right to the ballot for the first time at the municipal elections in the spring of 1914. After all, the climate is one of the things the people of Alaska have for self-congratulation. Think of the suffering of those poor people in the frigid zones down around Muscatine and Muskogee.
