THEIR SISTERS' KEEPERS It is easy to understand why the women of the country are turn ing against Wilson. From time to time there are disclosures of Un real conditions that have existed ill Mexico under tlie dc facto gov ernments which have been set up under the Wilsonian protectorate Though there has been a general suppression of facts, and the admin istration has denied possession of certain papers which have been placed in its hands, yet from independent sources have come a few of the stories of atrocities whose i-normity has not awakened tlie ad ministration from its "watchful waiting" policy. One of the latest of these stories is that concerning the experiences of a Chicago girl who was making her living in Mexico by serving as a pr ivate nurse While on a call to a small town she dropped her purse and an Ameri can gold coin rolled out. On the pretext, of punishing her for violation of the Carranza law against possession of gold money, she was ar rested and when she resisted the caresses of a Mexican army officer she was taken to what purported to be a jail, where her food wa drugged and she woke up next morning in the arms of the officer who had caused her arrest a man half Chinese and half Mexican, but pus sessing power under authority of the government existing hecaust President AVilson recognizes it. Another story recently published is that of an America II woman whose husband was robbed and murdered and who was herself ar rested because she placed on his tombstone the statement that he had been murdered. When she refused to become the "bride'' of an army captain and fought against his embraces, she was thrown into jail with a score of half drunken men prisoners whose attack during the night left her a wreck the next day. She was finally re leased and left to make her way to the homes of Mexican friends whe dared not try to bring her persecutors to justice. When American women read stories such as these of wrongs to other American women, and when they realize that such eonditioni can exist only because the head of the American government an noiinces that he is "too proud to tight," it is no wonder that they refuse to east ballots or exert influence for "four years more" of tbt same kind of administration. LET THE PEOPLE PAY The Collector of Customs at the port of New York, who draws a salary of $12,000 a year, has deserted his office and gone out on the stump for Woodrow Wilson. He has not deserted the salary. It is quite likely that the office will get along just as well without him as many offices these days are getting along without their highly paid incumbents. Letting the office run itself is part of the Demo cratie program while the party bosses are seeing to it that the Ameri can people put up a great shout for four years more of Wilsonisui It takes a lot of money and a lot of official assistance to raise a good shout for four years more of any kind of a Democratic administration, so they let the office work go hang. The campaign must be conducted by the paid employes of the government, even if the expenditures are exceeding the revenues at the rate of a million dollars a day. "Let the people pay," has been the rule of the Wilson administration and there is no disposition to change it now. William F. MeCombs, while journeying to Shadow Lawn where he was expected to kiss the hand that smote him, was suddenly stricken witli a loss of voice and was compelled to cancel his engage, inent by telegraph. Doubtless, his vocal cords were stricken with re volt as he thought of the. things he would like to say to Wilson and then reflected upon the things he would have to say. Henhy (' Friek has purchased the Hcmhrandl masterpiece, "An Old Woman Reflecting Over the l ecture," for 1800,000. Now if h wants to do something nice he ought to rename its "Watchful Wait ing" and hang it in th White House. Vice President Marshall says that Mr. Wilson has blazed a new trail, but when he Maris to Vllow Hughes on the stump he will dis cover that he is trailing a new blase. Boston Transcript.

The President is now a can didate for office and speaks well of labor. Until he became candidate for office, and as long as he was President of a Univer sity, he, with entire safety, ig nored or assailed the Labor Unions, Indeed, he was than their bitter, ungenerous, and eften unjust critic. At the Peo ple's Forum on February 25, 1905, he said: "Labor Unions drag the highest man to the level of the lowest." In an address at a dinner in the Waldorf-Astoria on March 18, 1907, in speaking of the capitalists, he said: "There is another equally formidable enemy to equality and better ment of opportunity, and that to the elasa formed by the la bor organization anil leaders of thla country." In letter writ ten January 12, 1909, he said: "I am a fierce partisan of the open shop." In June of the same year, speaking at Princeton, he said: "The usual standard of the employ in our day is to give as little as he may for his wages. Labor is standardized by the trades unions and this Is the standard to which It la mad to conform. I need not point out how economically dis astrous such a regulation of la bor is. The labor of America Is rapidly becoming unprofitable under this regulation. Our eco nomic supremacy may be lost because the country grows mor and mor full of unprofitable servants." I have no question that when Mr. Wilson thus spoke he expressed his sincere convictions. Less than two years later he was in public life and Immediately his attitude chang d. Thar is no reason to believe that his convictions changed. From the Speech of Colonel Roosevelt at Battle Creek, Michigan, In Behalf of Mr. Hughe.
