district, subject to the action of the
Democratic voters, expressed at the
There are thousands of young
misri-in this country, who have
grown very patriotic m recent
days, and they are clamoring for
war witn the nuerta aggrega
tion in Mexico, but those who
are making trie most noise are
not looking for a recruiting
office. They say President Wil
eon is too slow, that his waiting
policy&is intolerable;that the
Umted Suites oughtf to fight,
andrMSlJnow; thatftbe delay
has en'-pba long already. War
is alaeriou thing. It means
death to many thousands of men,
and it would cost this country
millions and millions of dollars,
thereby stagnating all classes of
business. The fellows who are
clamoring to fight, and not will
ing to shoulder a gun themselves,
do not seem to realize the great
destruction that follows
neither do they seem to
.how much better it would be for
the country not to go to war if
the trouble could be honorably
settled. The Huerta govern
ment is not recognized at Wash
ington. The whole layout is re
garded as a band of desperadoes,!
.cut throats and murderers, who
cannot govern.themselves, neith
er are they willing . to be gov
erned. The News is of the opin
ion that if Huerta would throw
up the sponge, say to the United
States that he has acted, wrong
fully, make all amends demand
ed by President Wilson, our
fleets and land forces could be
withdrawn, and the President
could say to the two fighting
factions in Mexico, go together
and fight as long as two men re
jnain to stand in front of each
other, it will matter not a bobbee
to this country. There are
many young Americans who are
chivalrous, and who truly love
the flag. Many of them would
go out from well-governed
homes, surrounded by the com
forts of life, and they should not
be asked to sacrifice their lives
for a lot of greasers unless it
should prove absolutely necessa
ry in order to chastise the heath
en Mexicans for wantonly insult
ing the United States. It is not
a question as to whether this
country could subdue the Huerta
forces or even the united
strength of Mexico. The United
States could hold its own, in our
- judgment, against any two na
tions, were it necessary to go up
against such a force. As to
Mexico, the whipping of that
'' ' country would be like an infant
lief ore a giant. If real war does
not come the writers who are
now, criticizing President Wil-
.. son's policy, will see in the future
th&this-.actjons Twera wiae:rand
patriotic. ' Besides the'President,
he has associated with him wise
men, men who know what war
means. In our judgment if peace
;can be secured, it would be bet
ter for those who man the ships,
for the land forces and for this
enlightened nation. If our en
treaties for peace are not heed
ed, there is not a doubt in our
mind but the Washington gov
ernment will declare war, and.
that the fighting would be over
before the leaves fall
Hon. Roilin:Hurt,6f this place,
formally announces his candida
cy, in to-day's News, for Judge
of the Court of. Appeals inthis
the Third District, subject to the
action of the, Democratic prima
ry to be held in August. Every
body throughout this, section of !
Kentucky knows. Mr. f JEIurt, his
ability as a lawyer and his worth
as a citizen, hence words of
laudation from his home paper
are unnecessary. It will not be
out of place though, to state,
that he has been in a number of
counties comprising the district,.
and that he has been given a cor
dial reception at each of his:ap-'
pointments, and at this tage of
the canvass he js we)L pleased.
with the encouragement he has
received. He expects to visit all
the counties in the district be
fore the primary, hoping to
meet as many voters as possible
in the twenty-three counties
The very latest from Washing
ton is that President Wilson has
accepted an offer from Brazil,
Argentina and Chili to use their
good offices in an attempt to
bring about a peaceful settle
ment of the difficulty between
the United States and Mexico.
The offer was formally submit
ted by three South American en
voys to Secretary Bryan, who
laid it before the President. It
is further stated from Washing
ton that it is ascertained that,
this country will recognize the:
constitutionalists when they?

WAR IN MEXICO.
Vera Cruz, April 23. Early
yesterday afternoon the city of
Vera Cruz was in undisputed
possession of the American in
vading forces. Although there
was no organized force used
against them and the snipers
were less in evidence than at
any time during the fighting,
eight Americans were killed and
some thirty wounded. While
the Mexicans suffered more se
verely, the number of their cas
ualties has not been ascertained,
but the best estimate's obtained
by Capt. William R. Rush, of the
battleship Florida, indicated that
in the engagements of Tuesday
and Wednesday their dead
amounted to about 150. No per
son knows how many Mexicans
fell wounded, as a large part of
them were taken away and hid
den by friends.
In the streets about the plaza
Wednesday afternoon lay fifteen
or twenty bodies, a majority of
them attired in citizens' clothing,
borne of ttie men evidently had
.been dead since the engagement
of Tuesday and the tropical heat
made their disposal imperative.

ter the town had been captured
was to bury the Mexican dead in
a trench at the sea end of pne of
the streets leading -from the
When the city -was taken the
order was given toadvance care
fully and search every building
for men bearing arms. Scores
of prisoners were taken, most of,
them protesting voluably, many
hysterically that they were not
guilty of any unfriendliness
whatsoever toward the Amer
icans. Washington, April 23. Secre
tary of State Bryan and Secreta
ry of the Navy Daniels were
called to the White House late
to-day. Prior to the conference
tjie Secretary df State had com
municated with a representative
of the Mexican Constitutionalisms,
and it was reported that indicar
tions had been received of a more
friendly attitude onr the part qf
the Constitutionalisms 'than that
expressed in the Carranza note
last night. ' -

Gustavo Maas, former Mexican
commander at Vera Cruz, was
reported to-day to be intending

"Why in should I salute?

This version of the language
of Huerta is vouched for by per
sons who have read the recent
dispatch of O'Shaughnessy.
