Entered at the Twin Falls postoffice as second class matter as a twiee-a-week publication, October 18, 1910. DISCONTINUANCE : NOTICE: « GOODWIN'S ON MEXICO Goodwin's Weekly, one of the most brilliantly edited Repub lican publications in the west, in discussing the latest Mexico out rage, places the blame where it really belongs, when it declares that the men who were killed should never have been sent out without a sufficient guard to protect them, and denounces the "mining com panies who sent their officers and men to resume work without first taking means to protect them." This criticism is the fairest that has yet been made by critics of the president. If a mining company in this country at the close of an Indian war had sent foreign workmen into the Indian country while predatory bands were still roving abroad without securing military protection for them, and the men were killed, deplorable as the incident might be, the foreign powers of which the men killed were citizens, would hardly have been justified in demanding in tervention. Goodwin's criticises President Wilson for not invading Mexico on the assassination of President Madero and insists that after such intervention an election should have been called by the United States and a president chosen, when we should have retired with out demanding any territory or pecuniary advantages. As Taft was president at the time that the murder of Madero occurred, the censure should have been directed against him, if against anyone, for failing to follo-w the course outlined. In fact President Wilson simply followed Taft's precedents in regard to the Mexican situ ation. But Goodwin's admires Taft and therefore throws the blame on Wilson, though it does have the fairness to exonerate him from the charge of cowardice that small politicians have made. It says: "The hardest thing that can be said about President Wilson is that he has no natural aptitude, no training, no experience to fit him to cope successfully with assassins and thieves who have for the time being obtained places where they can prey upon their fellow' men." The critic acknowledges by implication that the representatives of South American nations are equally at sea. However erroneous the opinion of Goodwin's may be on the incidental question as to whether Taft or Wilson managed the Mexi can muddle as well as it might have been managed, it does well to call attention to the men really to blame for the latest outrage, the ereat minine companies that sent miners into a lawdess district with out providing for their safety. They should have applied to the Mexican government for a sufficient euard and if that could not have been obtained, they should have stayed out of the danger zone until normal conditions were restored. WE WOULD LIKE SOME FIGURES Before accepting too readily the implied strictures on the post office department by Congressman Smith for the regrettable charge in the design for the Twin Falls postoffice, it might be well to re member that in order to provide for preparedness, retrenchment is considered necessary and that all the departments are trying to cur tail expenses wherever possible, in some instances, as in this case, suggestions for curtailment will be made where there should be no reduction, and there is no doubt that on a vigorous protest from Twin Falls people the original plan will be adopted. But when it is finally adopted it is pretty certain that the Statesman will have one of is periodic "porkbarrel" cartoons on the front page censur ing the department for extravagance and appealing to the voters to defeat the Democrats for wasting the people's money. A reasonable respectful but firm protest should be sent to the department against its change of design. Congressman Smith expresses the belief that the sort of structure in marble in accordance with the original de sign. would be little more than the cost of the building in brick under the new design. It is unfortunate that Mr. Smith was un able to spare time from his duties to learn approximately how r much that small difference w'ould amount to before he wrote as a pro test could be made more intelligently and, therefore, more effec tively were such information at hand. Perhaps if he will apply at the department he can secure the estimated cost of both designs PRICES MAINTAINED IN STOCK MARKET Late Trains Bring Small Loads But Market in Portland Holds Up Well In all Things. Sheep today are conspicuous by their absence, none whatever being unloaded. strong. Best lambs at $8.26, best ewes $6.30 and yearlings as high as $7.00, says the Portland Live Stock Reporter. Hog undertone has been steady to strong with but few arrivals. Shipments, as was expected, are falling short of past two months. North Portland is again enjoying dis tinction of being the best Western market. Only a few hogs were on the market today with the bulk of the run re ported in at 4 o'clock, too late for to day's market. All live stock trains are late and but little stuff is on the market today. A few cars are reported for late this afternoon. With exception of steers of off grade, which seem to be possibly a dime to fifteen cents under last week prices are maintained.
