SOME PEACEABLE WAV.
Following the announcement on the
part of our government to the effect
that the State Department is prepar
ing strong representations to Mexico
on the subject of the destruction of
American lives and the property of
Americans, comes a statement from
President Madero’s brother to the
efect that Mexican troubles are great
ly exaggerated. He declares that
there are large areas of Mexico which
are practicully undisturbed by present
troubles; that the so called rebels have
no organization and no army worth
the name: that the only warfare there
is guerrilla warfare.
Perhaps what he says is true in a
measure, and because it is measurably
true the government of the United
States has been patient under provo
catim that would hardly have been
endured of any other nation. Yet we
must not forget that it is in that very
^■igaorrilla warfare that American pro
perty owners are being robbed and
American citizens are being carried
away from their homes and held for
ransom. As to the extent of that
same guerrilla warfare, Mr. Madero
is wrong or the press dispatches are
wrong. It happens at this time that
the imposed action of cur state
department is founded,not upon things
printed in the newspapers, but upon
representations from reputable people
Yvho have been on the ground where
the outrages are committed and who
know whereof they speak. Americans
do not want war with Mexico, and
they do not contemplate war. Nevert
heless it must be clear to the world
that the United States cannot endure
forever the outrages daily committed
against Americans in Mexico. Some
peacable way will be found, no doubt,
to protect our countrymen there; but
a way of some sort must be found ana
that speedily.

I^ouis Heinshimer of New York, re
cently deceased, had the distinction
of having the largest known cash
balance to his credit when he died, to
wit $3,500,000. It is the sort of dis
tinction, however that does a man very
little good after he is dead.

Mr. Wilson gives it out that we
may look for cabinet announcements
about the first of March; which is the
time of year when we usually look out
for squalls.
o
The ambassadorial conference has
announced that Servia may have a
seaport and that Albania may have
autonomy. The ambassadoral confe
rence does not represent tne people
who have done the fighting, but the
people who have invited then.selves
to referee the panic'.

There is a young man in Kansas
City who wishes to learn to spell and
define every word and syllable of the
unabridged dictionary. Yet as that
particular highway to knowledge is
is long and tedious, requiring
both leisure and patience, he wrote to
the judge asking to be locked up in
jail for three years. He kindly offered
to commit any crime that would enti
tle him to that sort of accommodation
for that length of time. The judge
perhaps recommended him to take a
j few elementary iessons in the New,
Testament before tackling the dictio
nary, under such circunstances. Let
us hope so at ieast.

The twenty-sixth report of railway
'commissioners shows that lO.bsr* prsons
j were killed in railway accidents last
year, while lbb.Sns were injured. The
figures look rather large, and, making
all due allowances for the extra-haz-(
ordous nature ol railroad work as far!
I
employes are eourerned. it N quite evi-1
dent that the number of casualities is;
much greater than it should be. As to!
the employes, the commission finds that j
ss jm*r cent of accidents were caused
! by mistakes on their part. On the other
hand it i> discovered that out of S21-"» j
derailments, -ATll 1 were caused either by j
defects of roadway or by defective equip- j

Still, the administration-is going to
deal with the Mexican situation in a
‘spirit of deliberation”. It will re
quire some deliberation to frame a
shut-up-or-put-up proposition in such
a delicate way that the other fellow
will either put-up-or shut-up without
feeling under the least constraint.

The president has gone to see if it

The president is the recipient of a
pair of home-knit gloves from a dear
old lady in Michigan, aged 04. She
begged him to accept them as a Christ
mas gift. They will not be of much
use to him in Panama, but they
should come in handy when he goes to
his new job in New Haven. It is
pleasant to record the fact that the
president ’appreciated the gift and
accepted it.

At this Christmas time it is good to
