Military experts say a war •with Mexico would mean tnucb giier fillu fighting. How seriously the various countries •swere involved was shown by the .loeees of tbe American citizens iu the sCity of Mexico. When the Americans ventured to their homes after the days iof bombardment and street battles fthey discovered great havoc. Claims ■ presented to the United States officials tad in turn forwarded to the state de triment totaled « sum over SS,(KX),- Wt And the foreign residents of oth tar nationalities suffered an equally -heavy loss. *;• + -t- •> ■> BRINGS FEUD I Mil BBS | Troops Missed on Dorder. $ Treasury of Mexico Is * Found Looted. * —*■ ♦«♦♦♦♦; •> •> v•> •> •> + Meantime the treasury of Mexico, which ultimately was to be drawn upon for restitution, had been sacked and looted until a board formerly amounting to millions was found to total ti little over jt'.C.OOn. All over Mexico the same general story of damage has heel) reported, although in no case to such a serious extent as in the capital city. The con dition of unrest and outlawry in the rural and mining districts led the American resident investors to arm themselves and fortify their property. Mines in Sonora and other states were placed under martial guard. Cannons were mounted about the pits and the collieries, and stores of ammunition were laid in. The latest authentic estimate of American interests in Mexico places the total at over SI.oufUNKUKtO. This sum is lio per cent more than the capi tal invested by the Mexicans them selves and is tv.ice as much as the in vestments of all the other nations combined. This capital covers mining aud smelting properties, railroads, agri cultural and industrial enterprises, oil wells, plantations and ranches. The Guggenlieims. or the American Smelting and lieiining interests, head the list of Investors. That an organized plot to bring about a general Central American uprising has been freely surmised by close ob servers. Ciprinno Castro, the exiled dictator of Veuezuela. and Jesus San tos Zelnyn. deposed president of Nica ragua, were suspected of being behind the main conspiracy. According to rumors, it was their plan to overthrow the governments of Honduras. Guatemala and Nicaragua and to combine these countries into a Central American federation. Juan Leets. a notorious Ilussian, well known as professional leader of Latin American uprisings, was said to be one of the leaders in the latest plot. Signs of the plot were found in the presence of Manuel Ugarte, a Hondu ran exile; Daniel Mena, son of Gen- Photo by American Press Association.

There has long been said to exist in that country a strong anti-American feeling. Castro's iutlu enee in Havana also was said to be di rected toward evil things. Following the summary killing of former President Madero and former Vice President Jose Pino Suarez, it was apparent that Victoriano Huerta. pro visional president, would be held mor ally responsible and his rule would be an unstable one. The shnine of the country in Madero aud Suarez's death, it was declared, would ultimately force Iluerta out of office. It is just two years beyond the cen tury since Mexico set itself in the path of republican government. In that time the list of those who have held rule over Mexico and have come to death at the hands of their rivals or by act of what has purported to be con stituted authority is long enough to attract attention. The century is one long chapter of turmoil and insurrec tion. It lias its long roll of those who have fallen in the attempt to wrest power from those who held it. Un successful in their revolts, it would be a difficult task to discover their names and their deeds in the records of the usual course of common events in the republic of Ihe Aztec eagle, where a failed life counts for little. There are many in the list of those whose revolts have succeeded, who have come to power as constitutional as is wholesome south of the Itio tlrande. who have paid the penalty ot their greatness. This roll of the dead begins with the furious priest who re mains in memory as the liberator ot Mexico. It includes both the emperors who sought to set themselves on the thrope of tile Montezumas. and Us lust entry is in Ink scarcely dry. Tin-: Washington standard, .margh h. ma 25,000 ACRES OPEN.

Democratic members of the house from states west of the Mississippi riv er are perfecting a defensive organiza tion against cuts in tariff duties which they think may affect injuriously their local industries, says a Washington report. About 50 members of the house have now entered into this combination. They include the members from Min nesota, from the states along the nor thern border west to Washington and south to Carolina. Leaders of the organization move ment desire to head off free wheat, dairy products, meats and lumber from Canada, free beet sugar and free citrus fruits and free ores from Mexico. They hope to recruit strength from Texas, which is opposed to free beef from Mexico; Louisiana and Missis sippi, opposed to free sugar and rice; Florida, opposed to cuts in the duties on citrus fruits and the Carolinas, op posed to free lumber. TO OBSERVE HOLY WEEK Protmtnnt Cbuirchea of Olympia to Join In Union Service* all Next Week. The seven Protestant churches of Olympia, Congregational, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Methodist, Christian, United Presbyterian and Baptist, will unite in the observance of Holy Week next week,- the principal services of the week, on Good Friday, being held at St. John's Episcopal church under the leadership of the rector, Rev. C. S. Morrison. Recommending that a new petition be drawn so the road would follow Third instead of Fourth street, the commissioners this week denied the petition of M. E. George for a new county road extending from Bowery and Fifth streets southeast on Fifth to Olney street, then east to Fourth and southeast on Fourth to Central street. The county engineer reported there is a drop of 39 feet in a distance of 100 feet in the block between Broad way and Cedar streets, which would have necessitated a heavy grade and cut and the closing of the present road in that vicinity. The board is considering the peti tion of M. F. Neat for a road from the quarter section line of section 23, township 17, range 1 west, on Wal dick's road, thence east to intersect the Olympia road. The union services for the first four days of the week, beginning at 8 p. m. each evening, are: Monday, Congre jgatlonal; Tuesday, Presbyterian; Wed nesday, each in its own church; Thurs day, Methodist. From 12 noon to 3 p. i m. Good Friday the annual three-hour j watch service will be observed at St. I John's, the rector being assisted by I Rev. D. A. Thompson, pastor of the 1 First Presbyterian church, and Br. C. |A. Bowen, pastor of the First Meth ] odist church. The Cantata of the Crucifixion, which will be given first by the choir of St. John's church at 7:30 next Sun day evening, Palm Sunday, in a special musical services will be repeated Good Friday evening, in a union service be ginning at 8 o clock. In the rendition of the cantata Palm Sunday evening the solo parts will be taken by S. L. Harris, baritone, and Will Pentecost, basso. NEW CITY DIRECTORY .look Will Cuter olvmiiln nml Thurston 11111 l V] 11 MO II CIIIMIIII'K. A gnat financier recently said: ■Show me your city directory and I'll ■ tell you what your city is, regardless of what your Chamber of Commerce or Rooster club may say." A greater 'truth was never spoken. No publica 11i*>n shows the progression or retro gression of a city so accurately as the directory. It is tbe only complete in dex to the city and its people today, ami stands alone as tbe only authentic record of the past. Every citizen should take a special pride in being properly represented in his city direc tory. Thousands of people are consulting the Olympia, Thurston and Mason county directories in the directory lib raries throughout the country every day. it. L. Polk & Co., are now making their canvass for this directory, which will contain an alphabetical list of the business firms and private citizens of Oiympia, Lacey, Little Rock, Rochester, Shell on, Sherlock, Tenino and Turn water, and a list of all business firms in the towns and villages of Thurston and Mason counties, and all residents paying taxes, also residents on the ru ral free delivery routes of the counties and a complete business diectory of the two counties. They particularly call attention to the new arrangement of the informa tion to be contained in this directory. The advantages will be readily seen by those, who. through constant use, are familiar with the general stylo and make-up of the county directories heretofore in use, and this new ar rangement, they believe, will enable patrons, and the novice as well, to readily find information desired. The information will be compiled in the following order: Advertising department. Title page and index. Olympia City directory. Thurston county sketch and county officers. Thurston county towns arranged al phabetically with the names in each of the larger towns following sketch of same. These lists include the names taken from the county tax roll as well as names of all people residing on rural delivery routes, making the list for each town complete in itself. Instead of having three separate alphabetical lists of names for each town, viz. (1) following sketch, (2) rural route list, and (3) tax list, you will And all the names for each large town following sketch of same, making one complete alphabetical list for each town. Mason county will be compiled the same. Thurston and Mason counties clas sified business directory will be com piled, first, by business, second, by town, and third, by name. The figures after names will Indicate the assessed valuation of personal prop erty as shown by the county tax roll. Since the enfranchisement of women, in this state, they will include the given name of all married women (in parenthesis) following the husband's name. This will be the only work published containing this information. The book will be bound in old gold cloth em bossed in red and black, and will be invaluable to our merchants for refer ence, addressing and mai'ing purposes. Can you, Mr. Business Man, afford to have the 1913 directory of your city thrown broadcast throughout the city and county at large without your business displayed in a manner befit ting your standing in the commercial activities of Olympia? Write now and make sure that your business or profession is properly noted before it is too late. R. L. POLK & CO., Care of Chamber of Commerce. Adv. 3-2-3 PRESIDENT WILSON'S MESSAGE. Editor Washington Standard: Dear Sir: I think that I express the sentiments of a great majority of the people of Olympia when I assert that we have the best mayor In the state, the best governor in America, and the best president on earth, If his Inaugural address means for the country what Governor Lister's inaugurul meant for the people of Washington. Wilson has the help of both branches of the legis lature where Governor Lister has neith er, yet he Is holding them level and making them show their hand, and their constituents will see that they do not come hack two years from now to block his economical efforts. The Tay lor machine has fired its wad and it has been heard all over the state of Washington, and it will echo until the next election. Next to Lincoln's Get tysburg speech, the inaugural of Presi dent Wilson is more patriotic and con tains more subjects for thought than any utterance ever made by an Ameri can statesman, especially to what the great American achievements have cost. It has nearly cost the people of America their birthright, but thanks to a few noble and self-sacrificing people that have turned their eyes from the glories of grand achievements and have beheld the sacrifices that have been made for them. Now they seem to be a nucleus for many to form on and bet ter conditions will exist for them In the middle and lower walks of life. President Wilson's message to the people must be a help and Inspiration to all patriotic citizens. RESIDENT. EASTER AT ST .JOHN S.

Reglnning with a choral celebration at 7 o'clock in the morning, when the Waster carols, the Eyre communion music and Handel's anthem, "1 Know that My Redeemer Livetli," will be sung, Raster Sunday will be observed in a particularly musical fashion by tbe members of St. John's Episcopal church this year. After the early morning communion services, there will be another musical program in connection with the morn ing prayer service and celebration of the Holy communion at 11 a. ni. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon there will be a public administration of holy bap tism and in the evening the annual Sunday school festivities, beginning at 7 p. m. The musical program for the 11 a. in. service, Easter Sunday, is: Processional, "The Day of Resur rection" Martin Easter Anthem, "Christ Our Pass over" Shilling Gloria Shilling Te Dcum Dudley Ruck Jubilate Reade Introit, "The Strife is O'er".Palestrina Gloria Tibi Eyre Credo Eyre Hymn, "Jesus Christ is Risen To day" Lyra Davidica Sermon Anthem, "Unfold Ye Portals Ever lasting" Gounod Offertory—Doxology Sanctus Eyre Renedictus qui venit Eyre Agnus Dei Eyre Communion Hymn Gloria in Excelsis Eyre Nunc Dimmittis MAKES NEW PRECEDENT Governor WHIIIMIIIIM Slunntiirc on L'lr»t Hill Currying ltrfrrrinliim Provision. While he broke a precedent during the last week, Governor Ernest Lister also established another one when he transmitted the teachers' retirement fund bill to the secretary of state's office without signing it, on the ground that he had no authority either to ap prove or veto it because of the pro vision in the constitutional amend ment adopted last fall that "the veto power of the governor shall not ex tend to measures initiated or referred to the people." The teachers' bill car ried a referendum provision. Governor Lister sent a brief message to the secretary of state in which, after quoting this provision in the con stitutional amendment, he added: "This clearly Indicates that the gov ernor of the state dqes not have the right to exercise the veto power on a measure of this kind. Therefore, in my opinion I would not have the right of approval, which approval would only indicate personal vlewß on a measure. In my opinion a bill of this character ought to be handed directly to the sec retary of state by the legislature with out even passing through the hands of the governor." CITV TREASURER'S BOND CALL.
