MEXICO ADDS TO HER TROUBLES
The killing o( seventeen Americans by order of a
Mexican bandit, said to be an officer of Villa's staff. Is
added proof of the chaotic conditions that have prevailed
in Mexico for the past four years. The crime, howover.
can hardly be charge to the Mexican people, or to the
the government of Carranza. It was the vengeance of
a bandit and brigand in retaliation, do doubt, for the
recognition of Carranza by the American government,
i.nd a- such !t must be viewed. However. Carranza's
government must be held responsible for tho outrage.
;ind he will probably make prompt compliance with our
government's demand that the murderers be punished,
and such reparation made as Is possible.
Mexico needs a strong man at the head of its gov
' rcment. and until another of the commanding ability
of Porflrio Diaz shall appear, a state of chaos and anar
chy is likely to continue. Such a man as Diaz Is yet to
be fouud. For the past four years or more Mexico has
been riven by internecine wars, strife, discord, rebellions
nnd counter-rebellions, at the whim of self-appointed
generals and alleged statesmen, not one of whom has
seemed to possess more than a mediocre ability, save [
.is guerrilla leaders.
Mexico Is not yet completely civuizea. as a maucr i
of fact, if there be any such thing as complete civiliza
tion. If she were, a sthble government could bo orga-;
r ized and maintained without a continuous spilling of
he blood of her own people and that of other nationals
:i her country. If we are to bolleve Prescott's "Conquest
of Mexico." the civilization of that country in 1519 was
' a much superior order than it is today. However, the
South American Republics only achieved something ap-:
proximating stable government through repeated revo
lutions lasting more than half a century after they had
-ecured independence from Spain. These continuous
revolutions entailed u sacrifice of many lives and the
' -tructlon of property. If left alone, Mexico will, in
course of time, work out her own destiny, but, no doubt,
at a tremendous sacrifice of blood and treasure.. Other
nations have come up through such tribulations; and
Mexico has the advantage of being our southern neigh
bor?an advantage which does not seem to be apprcciat
! by her people, although many American citizens have
profited by it. The armed intervent'on of the United
States in Mexico, should only be considered as a last
resort: and that may come unless Carranza is a stronger
man than he now appears to be.
BERING RIVER COAL FIELD DEVELOPMENT
A Seattle dispatch published in The Empire ot yes
terday. carried the news that a Seattle corporation pro
poses to develop a 1160-acre coal claim in the Bering
River coa! field, patent to which was granted recently.
The*Vompany, it is announced, will also build a railroad
from the coal mino to tidewater and erect bunkers to
handle its mined product. All of this is cheerful news.
Ber'ng River coal has been pronounced by experts to
be of excellent quality and suitable for domestic, coking
and Industrial purposes.
Alaska needs smelters for the treatment of its copper
pnd other smelting ores, and these will be provided, with
out doubt, whenever a sufficient supply of coal and coke
can be had. Both will be afforded by the opening of the
Bering River and Matanuska coal fields.
The matters dealt with In the Austrian note are purely
technical. Who would imagine from a superficial read
lug that American citizens had been murdered on the
high seas? There are a certain number of moves to be
made In the diplomatic game before the real play com
lences. That will begin when Austr'a has been brought
lace to face with the question which Is worth more?the
"right" to murder American citizens in transit in mer
chant vessels, or friendly relation with the United States.
WcVlll wait with what patience wo can command until
that point is reached. The art of swift and direct nego
tiation through plain speeech is unknown to the diplomats
The present demand for intervention in Mexico is
more Justifiable than any previous pressure for action.
But la It really Imperative? Secretary Lansing has made
the Issue clear according to telegraphic dispatches re
ceived by The Empire. The Secretary of State says his
department took every possible precaution to prevont
Americans from exposing their lives In regions where
Mexican guerilla warfare was In progress. Tho warning
was not heeded and tho blunderers paid with their lives.
Americans must remember that Carranza s doing tho
best that he can, but with Villa and his hundreds of
imitators In acts of vandalism and murder, even the
United States must recognize the fact that pacification
and absolute control, is yet far from being In Its first
An Eastern manufacturing concern sent a message
of cheer to tho thirsty of Seattle on January 1, through
a paid advertisement telegrnphed to a Seattle newspaper,
j which assured (hem that McDash's Bitters were immune
from the operation of the State's prohibitory law, and
were being manufactured In constantly Increasing quan
tities at the old stand. What a relief this message must
have been to the Seatle folks who like their dally "blt
To a man who has no axe to grind, It would appear
that tho sooner Juneau owns Its own water system, the
better will It be for the pople. Ther<> should be no pri

work on which will be actively commenced In the spring,

"FORWARD?MARCH! ! "
Under the above caption the Chicago Herald publishes
an interesting editorial, tho advice of which other cities,
individuals and nations might well heed.
The Emplro has similar sentiments and for that rea
son the editorial is republished herewith:
Yesterday the order was "Rest!" Today It 1s "For
ward?March!" Tho day of retrospection ends. The
time for newer action arrives. Much was achieved dur
ing the past year; be thankful and accept It. Great
things can be done during the present year;; be eanest
and achieve them. Let not too much thinking on a good
past spoil the prospects of a better present one!
To Individual, nation, state and city allko comes this
imperious call of duty and the highest form of self-inter
est March forward with high hopes?for they are
justified; with brave hearts?for they are needed; with
good courage?for It will surely win. If you falter and
fall, stop only long enough to set a little stone to mark
the place, and march on again. "Not !n vain the distance
beckons." It Is no mirage that confronts thoso who to
day stand, their eyes fairly set upon the future; no mir
age. but a host of fair realities as yet unreal, waiting
only the magic touch of action to be converted Into
things of priceless worth.
"Forward?march" citizens of this great republic.
, Close up the ranks! Let discord, bickering and division
i have an end! Let there be full and final agreement on
1 the great essentials of national life and loyalty! Under
j tho banners of a country and a patriotism alike "ono and
i Indivisible" go forward with full confidence In the fu
"Forward?march!" members of our great industrial
: organization, to richer returcs and to comforts more
I widely diffused than tho world has ever known before!
Shoulder to shoulder, conscious of a common interest j
that outweighs all difference, of a common task big not
only with tho weal of tho individual but of tho nation
and the world -march forward to fill the world's great
gaps that come from the wanton waste of war.
"Forward?march !'! citizens of Chicago-citizens "of
no mean city" indeed! A great campaign awa'ts you!
Of your concerted effort beauty shall be born to bless
all unbeauteous spots and them that know no beauty!
Aid shall come to those sore needing aid; and to each
nnd every soldier in tho ranks of good citizenship the
benlson of a duty done, a good deed performed, a benefit
conferred; more than that, a richer sense of what Chi
cago really is. Forward?march ! in the mood of one
Never doubted clouds would break;
Held we fall to rise, are baffled to fight better.
