D. S.J WHILE a new crisis in Mexican affairs impends, it is timely to voice a word of friendly reas surance to the citizens of Mexico who reside in El Paso and along the border. Already there is uneasiness among them, and some express doubt about the wisdom of remaining here. , No words are too strong to use in assuring these good people of El Paso's friendship and genuine regard. They are welcome to come and welcome to stay. Every power, public and private, would be exerted in any event to protect them from unfortunate occurrences every power that would be exerted in behalf of the Americans among us. hurt. The people of El Paso have been subjected to a land of espionage that has always been irksome and at times outrageous. Every faction has made its head quarters here, with juntas and militant plotting. Openly or covertly, every faction has had its representatives busy here among all classes and in all parts of the city. EI Paso is a lover of peace, an exemplar of order and law. Throughout more than four years of dis turbed conditions sear us, amounting at times to sav agery, this city has gone about her business and her pleasure unmoved. Throughout this whole period, there has not been a single instance in El Paso of lawless acts involving international or interracial feeling. It is truly a wonderful record. It is a record of which El Paso has a right to be proud. Nothing can happen to change the temper of the El Paso people. They are not hostile toward Mexico or Mexicans, and have never been hostile. In case anything should take place temporarily to disturb the relations of the two countries as independent nations, the condition would be deemed a public one, calling for no private or local in terference or reprisal. Throughout the years of Mexican revolution, this city has suffered great wrongs from the Mexican fac tional governments and from the American government. El Paso has been abused and attacked. She has been Such conditions might have produced an intolerable state of affairs here. Such conditions might have brought on frequent crimes or even rioting. Sach condi tions might have produced insults and aggressions, to arouse human passion and inflame racial antagonisms. Ent to the everlasting credit of all the people, citizens and visitors alike, and including civil and mili tary authorities, it is in the record that there has never been a crime or an act of aggression traceable to inter national or race feeling. Human rights have been re spected, the flags of the two countries have never been insulted, and peace and order have reigned here under law at all times. So it will ever be, and must be. No matter what happens in Mexico or in international relations. El Paso will keep the peace within her borders. No disturbance will arise here. Military and civil authorities will have assistance, moral, and physical should it ever become necessary, of the men of El Paso to conserve order and insure safety to all. tection, the same sort of protection, that is accorded our own people always assuming, of course, that on their part they abide by the laws and do nothing calculated to create doubt, suspicion, or hostility. So long as they remain disposed to cooperate with us to maintain order under law, and to conserve peace and safety, they will be regarded as one with us, and they need not feel the least apprehensive of any unfortunate thing happening to disturb the friendly relations always existing. They are our guests that is enongh. The Russian peasants have a pretty phrase expres sive of their traditional hospitality. When they re ceive a guest they give him bread and salt in token of his welcome and of domestic confidence. The "bread and salt brother" for the time is one of the family, and the family would no more think of taking advantage of him than he would think of violating the confidence reposed in him and thus naively expressed. So to our "bread and salt brother" from Mexico El Paso gives assurance of good will and the full protection of the laws of Texas and of the United States. To What Good End? Short Snatches From Everywhere With such a record behind us, and such a spirit ruling the people of El Paso today, EI Paso is the safest place in America. El Paso has been tried, and has not been found wanting. No matter what crisis may arise. El Paso will hold fast to the fine principles that have actuated her in the past El Paso will keep the peace. To El Paso's Mexican guests, let it be said with the conviction of sincerity and with the consciousness of power, that to them will be extended the same pro- A woman whose gold clock was stolen from her boudoir put no blame on her dog for not warning her of a burglar because he was only a watch dog. o Germany's victory over the Lusitania is so far the biggest loss she has suffered during the war. o There is a lively increase in business at the railway ticket offices in Germany and Italy.

Twenty-five were counted last week by watchers in one observatory. If the United States should break off diplomatic re lations with Germany, would it settle anything? If there should be war, would it settle anything? Would there be any glory or honor in adding the United States to make the tenth power in the aggregation fighting the central empires? It is not a question of danger or sacrifice to our selves, but a question of what would be gained for mankind. The American people ought to be doing a lot of hard thinking right now. The main questions are, What are we after? What Ho we seek to accomplish for perma nent good? How best go about our task of protecting ourselves against wrong, and insuring for the future a peaceable opportunity to work out our own national problems? The United States is writhing in a maze of self ques tioning. We have certain choices set before as. So much depends on what we shall do, how we shall do it, and when. We are not choosing for ourselves, but for all time, for posterity. The least we should allow ourselves is careful con sideration of consequences. We should take so step that we cannot demonstrate hereafter, while the world lasts, to have been justified. We should make no motion that we do not expect to have its logical result. The greatest thing to be feared is that we shall fail to enter into the minds of those with whom we are dealing, and that we shall unnecessarily precipitate a tragedy. Judged by the best human standards we new know, a necessary war is righteous a justifiable sacrifice in behalf of the progress of mankind. But by the same standards, an unnecessary -war is a crime against all mankind. Conscience is, or ought to be, the sole judge.

Practical men scoff at roses and do not see why time should be wasted upon them. Yet these same practical men, when they have worked themselves into a state of bilious ruin, climb aboard a ship and go to England where they wander down country roads, past cot tages, each of which is framed in roses; and they pay big prices for the privi lege. When a country spends enough money in training roses over Its gates and walls it becomes very difficult to keep the tourists away, and people are continually pestered with delighted strangers who wish to buy their homes away from them and sit among the roses winch they have been too lazy to plant at home. To plant a rosebush is to perform an act of simple kindness to a thousand eyes. We are not kind enough to our poor old eyes in America.

"E1 ays Herald s L ettcrs Reflect Public s Pul5 Ad American Hopes For American' ideals Asa Bedtime Story For the Little Ones "Mary Caw-Caw and the June Boses." By HOWARD B. GARIS. MART CAW-CAW, the little crow girl, woke very early in her nest-house in the taU pine tree one morning, and, fluttering first one wing and then the other, and stretch ing out her claws, she flew down to the ground. "Why, Maryi where are you going so early before breakfast?" asked Aunt Flippity-Flop, the dear old maid crow lady, who, as usual, was sweeping off the front porch of the nest. T am going after flowers." said Mary, as she dipped her beak In a little spring of clear, cool water, and took a long drink. "Flowers!" exclaimed aunt Flippity Flop, and as she said that she swept a little too much dust on one side of her left claw, and the next moment she fell right down. Zip! But she did not get hurt in the least, as she fell on the soft doormat, which was made of old crow feathers. "Oh. how you startled me," exclaimed Mary. Yes. I am a little surprised myself." aunt Flippity-Flop said. "I know it only takes a very little to upset me. such as too many raisins on one side of my sugar cookie, but I never thought a little too much dust on one side would do it. I must be more careful after this." Aunt Flippity-Flop was very sensi tive and easily upset, you see. Why. sometimes she would fall down if the canary bird Just put his head too much on one side. But the dear old maid crow lady was seldom hurt, though she did flip and flop, which was the reason she had such an odd name. "You sav you are going after flow ers, Mary?" asked aunt Flippity, as she carefully swept toe oust all up in heap in the middle, so as not to upset nerseii again. "Yes. flowers for our school." re plied the little crow gtrL "The lady mouse teacher asked us all to bring some. So I am going otx m the woods before breakfast to gather a bouquet." "That will be nice," spoke aunt Flippity-Flop. So Mary Caw-Caw flew down and gathered flowers, singing as she made them into a bouquet with ferns and ribbon grass. And she sang a song like this: "I see flowers red and blue, I will gather them for you. Rain and sunshine from above, Grow the flowers that we love. "Prettv flowers, as they dwell. In woodland depths, are sweet to smell. Don't smell too hard, though. If you Or flower-dust will make you sneeze. And, no sooner had Mary sung that song than she took a long, sweet smell of a yellow dandelion, and, surely enough, the dust got up her nose and she sneezed: "A-ker-ehoo! A-ker-choo! A-ker-choo'" But the little crow girl did not mind that, and kept on gathering flowers until she had a fine bouquet for the ladv mouse teacher. Then Mary flew back to her nest house to get ready for school, and, on her -way, she flew past the garden where a rich canary bird gentleman lived. His house was a golden cage, and all aronud it were beautiful June roses blooming. "Oh. how I wish I had some of those roses!" sigben Mary. "They are so much more gorgeous than the plain little wild flowers that wilt so quickly" But she could not have any of the lovely June roses? and she knew it, so she tried to be satisfied -with the more simple blossoms. But you Just wait and see what hap pens. Uncle Wlggily Longears. the rabbit gentleman, had also risen early that morning to take a walk m the woods before breakfast And he happened to be near the gold caee-house of the ca nary bird gentleman as Marv time past on her way to the nst-house Lucie Wiggllv heard what the little crow said. "So she wants some of those June roses, dees she?" said the rabbit gentle man softly. "Well, she shall have them. I am rich, and I'll buy some roses for her from the canary bird gentleman." Which uncle Wiggily did, taking them to the little crow girl. Just as she was about to start for school with her wild flower bouquet. "Oh, how lovely!" cried Mary, as she saw the gorgeous blossoms. "Teacher will be Just wild about these June roses." "Not too wild, I hope," said uncle Wiggily, twinkling his nose. "Oh, no. just a little wild," laughed Mary. Then she gave her woodland flowers to Jimmie. her brother, to take to the teacher, and Mary herself car ried the June roses, which smelled most wonderfully, and did not make her sneeze, either. Well, half way to school Jimmie ran on ahead to play ball with Jackie Bow Wow, the puppy dog boy, and Mary was left alone on the path, carrying the June roses. The little crow girl was sniffing and smelling them, when, all of a sudden, out from behind a stump Jumped the bad, old, tail pulling chimpanzee mon key, who bad not been seen for a week or more. "Ah, ha!" cried the chimpanzee. "If I can't pull nucle WIggllys tail, I can pull out your feathers, crow girl!" "Oh, please don't!" begged Mary "Yes I shall, too!" cried the chimp. "And I'll take those roses, also, and make soup and hash of them " Oh, how badly Mary felt then. But don't worry- Just you wait and see what happens. The chimpanzee tall pulling monkey made a grab for the June roses, and, before making soup or hash of them he took a long smell, for he just loved perfume. Only he made a mistake, not knowing any better, and he smelled of the prlckery, thorny stems, instead of sniff ing the roses. The thorns pricked his nose and the monkey suddenly cried: "Ouch! Wow! Oh, my! Some one stuck a needle in me! Zoop!" Then the monkey dropped the June roses, and ran off to get a bit of court plaster for his nose, and Mary picked up the bou quet and hurried on to school, where she soon arrived safely. So this teaches us that the thorns on roses are very useful, and In the story after this, if the eggbeater doesn't climb the bean pole and Jump off into the clothes basket with the potato masher, I'll tell you about Mary help ing uncle Wiggily.

"I have visited number of border ports in the last week and at each of them I have found a keen interest manifested by Mexicans of all factions in the development of the Mexican policy at Washington." said Leonard Meade. "Little attention was paid to the movement at first but. since the revi val of Intervention talk the interest has become keen. Most of the Mexicans ex press the belief that intervention is not even being considered. There is one thing certain, however; every Mexican on the border is taking more interest in the outcome of the president's policy than at any time since intervention talk was broached." "The army is always ready to co oporate in every possible way with the citizens of the cities near which are army stations for the observation of ! national holidays," said Gen. J. J.

"The road is rather crooked and there are enough varieties of grades, hills and sudden turns to keep the driver busy but. to anyone" who likes this western country of ours, the trip though short is a most agreeable one.

Editor Bl Paso Herald: TO ONE who for the last five years has felt that the high plane of American diplomacy and the well earned pride of American citizenship were gradually sinking Into commer cialism and "peace at any price" poli cies, tt Is gratifying and refreshing to read the galaxy of letters in The Week Bnd Herald. Since The Herald In the present na tional crisis has undertaken its lauda ble mission of leading the people to think, those who do think and feel strongly are encouraged to come out in their plain way to express their convic tions of the ideals that must be man tained if we are to cherish our self re spect and perpetuate the traditions that have made our flag the emblem of the only undefeated nation on the globe. Travis Sanders's, J. Cannon's and others' expositions of the disgraceful policies of the department of state are spectacular, and should appeal strong ly to jurists, diplomats and public men in general to intercede In some way to turn the ship of state back to those safe, sane harbors where it was so strongly anchored in the days before Knox and Bryan made Its maneuvers the butt of the whole world's ridicule. Really it would be amusing, if the shame of the thing were not so over whelming, to see illustrated In the dally press of Villa and Bryan pleading for non-enforcement of court sentences for fear of Mexican reprisals If Mexicans were not treated better than native Americans! William J Bryan, the vet eran constitutional lawyer, acting as the main International guide for the American people turned harlequin and down! The effusion of Miss Dorothy Ester brook In verse recalls vtvtdly the recent insults to our flag on the high seas by Great Britain and the other nations without adequate protest from the Great Commoner; and refers to the piti ful spectacle of Leonard Worcester, a worthy American citizen, who has been held for many months in a Chihuahua jail by special dispensation of a bandit leader who is printing his own money, and whe. through one of his eonfiscated minlng deals, is holding this American citizens to extort blackmail. Although Marion Letcher, our worthy Chihuahua consul, has reported the matter, and an who are conversant with the facts know that his detention Is a flagrant violation of right. Messrs. Carothers and Bryan are working In cooperation with Villa in the matter. The time was when our secretaries of state were men in the fullest sense of the term when an ultimatum, not sickly protests that have passed as the idle wind, would have Issued and Instantly commanded respect. It is not so long since Cutting, the El Paso newspaperman, was seized and held in Juarez. No words were wasted, for the governor of the Lone Star state sent word that unless given immediate unconditional liberty, he pro posed to move on their works. Cutting was released. Thanks to the healthy leavening of the press and the latent frontier blood of our people, there is yet hope that the decaying influences of the insipid policies of men who temporarily occupy high places will not totally conquer that grand. Inherent love of Americans to assert their rights everywhere on the face of the globe without reckoning the coat, and to forever maintain that .grim war Is preferable to a dishonorable peace. THE RBSLUIKABLE GERMANY. Editor El Paso Herald. Please allow me space for a slight correction to a statement made by "An American of Barbarian Descent" in the "week-end" edition of your paper. As for this writer's attempt to prove that Germany has not lain Itself liable to any charge of "barbarism" in its foreign policy, by calling attention to the progressive features of its domestic irovernmnt, I think that. If he will stop to consider the matter, he will realize that proof of mental ingenuity and of advanced methods In the handling of her Internal affairs is not a sufficient answer kB a definite charge of "bar bel Is at -tat the conduct of the great worM war. Considered In the abstract, however. this writer's statement regarding Ger many's mangement of her industrial affairs coincide, in ever parucula. , with the knowledge that I have been able to gather on the subject from a more or less extensive reading of books and authoritative articles, as well as some mingling with her transplanted citizens Especially is this true of Uia efficient manner in which she has en forced her compulsory education laws and the marvelous perfection of her system of free employment bureaus y which she has practically eliminated vagabondage and pauperism within t-.r boundaries. And now, without getting into a'V argument about any mistakes that t-a directors of her foreign policy m-'' have made, I think there is no disput ing the statement that .she is reap-? a rich reward. For nearly a year s' a has been fighting against odds that a. 3 practically five to one In favor of to "other fellow." Her milltarv lead---ship has been equal to any. but still I have not heard that it has been ma terially superior to that by which sve been opposed. Under such circu" -stances, and against such odds, she has carried the fight to her enmies and has kept it there. History records no more marvelous achievement by anv people Situated as Germany has been an? nation with a large percentage of literates and burdened with any ci--siderable "army of unemployed' would have been "wiped off the map' In tin first month, even though it had fi?e times the population and natural re sources that Germany has. Germany's success has not been the success of a great military genius. It has been a marvelous achievement of a marvelous people. And yet the marvel of her people is a very simple thing. It is nothing more than universal trained intelligence and universally solid and well distributed prosperity. German s compulsory education laws and Ger many's system of tree employment bu reaus have been winning her battles for her, and the greatest wonder of all is that the "national leader of modern civilization." or any part of It. should be backward about following her ex ample.
