| NEW YORK LETTER. |
; "5<Fn?m Our Begalar Correspondent) [
t.'TN tti light of President Wilson's |
E.jJ frequent and enthusiastic oologies u
['re* of General Carranxa, his recent
WWylaratlon at New London that he
(K?#as more familiar with the tundamen- .
gStol principles of Mexican freedom and I*
:the Ideals of Carranxa than most
f&abnerlcans. his assurances to the MexKVCan
commissioners that he was In en- i!
n'pHre sympathy with Carranxa and that ?
Ej -"right thinking men all over the coun- ?
$ ''try must sympathise with such high 5,
K& .-.aspirations," the latest known decree '
r 61 Carranxa Is of especial Interest. "
R&- 1 The railroad men of certain Mexican ^
gv lines have organized and threatened *?
tfc,* to strike, wherefore, Carranza lssuea,
PjY On August 1, a decree declaring that
I' " "the conduct of the labor syndicate ?
.(union) In the present Instance con- ,
[' ' stitutes without doubt an attack on "
ft? the public peace" and that, therefore, "
|FV ' "I have decreed the following: Be- f
Iw: elJ.. ?ka n..kllA II
Iiuo uiomi uoi d ui iuc yuuiii'
punishable by deatb, as pre- n
id by the law ot Jan. 25, 1862,
lath penalty will also be Imposed ?
s following: Those who may in- JJ
luapension of work In ractoriea ?
terprises destined to public ser- "
r who may promulgate the aus
m of work; (hose who preside H
meetings in which It Is proposed, *
ised or approved; those who "
defend or sustain same; those n
nay approve or subscribe same, 11
who asBlst at those meetings H
0 not withdraw from same upon K
eg their object; and tbose wbo E
endeavor to make it (a strike) 8
Ive upon it being declared." The
e goes on at length, bringing o
9 its scope all who may hare ti
elation whatever to a strike or Bed
strike in any enterprise in b
1 the government is directly in- o
;ed. The penalty under the de- a
if Jan. 25. 1862. is deatb, by sen- a
of a drum-head court-martial, 1
ut trial by court or jury, that w
e having been proclaimed by b
o Juarez during the Mexican rev- a
n aganlst Maxamlllan. In a spe- ft
uessage which President Wilson
to Congress it was shown that
rnza had set aside the constltuind
all state laws. There are no .
s in operation in Mexico, because
e same decree authorizing such ,,
i, Carranza suspended their au- J
y subject to his further decree,
tow. since Carranza has literally ?
ed the policy of death to strik- !'
id members of labor unions, Pres- "
Wilson proclaims his sympathy w
. with and suport of Carranza and in- e
'H slats that "right thinking men, the ''
world over, must sympathize with "
j,- such high aspirations." b
Ei The Mexican Conference:
R:- - That the Mexican conference at
l?- - New London is devoted chiefly to
|V!'. 'marking time Is becoming dally more c
r. evident. Saturday, Sept. 16, being c
Ps ". the Mexican Independence Day, the a
f entire conference took a holiday. It b
rt-. is evident, however, that President
K Wilson purposes to have proclaimed ~

J t to support the contention tnat he has .
fl ^Mettled the Mexican situation by peaceul
methods, by the way the way,
which have cost the lives of more
k- Americans than did the entire Span- 5
K- ' lsh War, and which doubtless will en- v Bplr
tail fully as large a pension list. The
HCr American commissioners state that,
jsw... since the withdrawal of American
troops from Mexico has been laid
s aside, the time of the commissioners '
|i/ has been devoted to learning the soI
- clal and economic conditions in MexiNft'co,
a subject on which there were
|J&" numerous American army officers and
He diplomats who easily could have injfc.
formed them, although they would
I have dra\n a less rosy picture than
VSS. the Carranza commissioners and who.
Is. therefore, were not appointed on the
commission.
Niagara Next:
The extent to which San Domingo
*?'. and Hayti have felt the mailed fist of
i this administration, and the Iosb of
' life to the people of those countries
as well as to American soldiers and
F.-~ marines, have been referred to In this
column. Now It Is Nicaragua which

5jS President Wilson's foreign policy.
Pr . Mexico alone enjoys the privilege of
, having her "rights" respected and her
revolutionists made pets or, even
though they do murder Americans
fc;and decree "death to strikers and lagg
bor unions." The cruisers Chattan|R

ded there Is any outburst of popular
v Indignation against President Diaz
& '. when the national election is held, on
& .' October 1. Many of the people are
Bfc opposed to Diaz, who is expetced to "
jp. take such steps as may be necessary a
to effect bis own reelection, and the *j$'
Wilson administration does not in- v
iouu 10 permit mis opposition 10 18KG u
the form of a revolution if American "j1
marines and American guns can pre- ?

t I vehement insistence that no one has D
A right "to Interfere with the right of J1
f the Mexican people to work out their b
own salvation," the Klcaraguan pol- P
icy presents as sharp an inconsistency 8
as have San Domingo and Hayti.
Our Navy: ti
Ungracious as it may seem to re- w
fleet on our own navy, the widely ad- ?j
1 vertised compliments to naval target *
practice with 15-inch guns by certain <r
unnamed naval officers smack so n
?- largely of anti-election boasting that u
they deserve some analysts. It ap- e
1, pears that some hits were made with _
guns of this calibre by two ships, at
20,000 yards, it should be remember- .
ed, however, that the number of hits c
Is not disclosed, that the targets were u
stationary, ana that the firing was 0
done in perfectly calm water in Ches- u
speake Bay. In the recent Dogger- c
Bang battle, the English fleet opened
fire at 18,000 yards and began hitting g{
at 17,000 yards with both themselves .
and the enemy running at approxl- ,f
mately 29 knots an hour?better speed ,i
than many of our ships can make? ?
while In the battle of Jutland, firing .
was begun at 20,000 yards. Our navy "
has had too little practice with 15- rj
Inch guns to have attained great pro- j:
flclency In theli' use, and the vaguo gl
. leclaratlons regarding the results ...
