Must Do It Alone
On The Long Trail
In The Sierra Madre
Short Snatches From Everywhere.
Monday, April 3, 1916.
Regardless of whether the many rumors of Carranza
troops joining Villa or withdrawing from his path to
avoid him, are grounded in truth or not, the fact
cannot be evaded that if the Americans are to capture
Villa and his bandits they will have to do the work
alone and they will have to have stronger cooperation
from Washington. If any Carrancistas really do extend
cooperation in the pursuit, so much the better and easier,
but it will be folly to count on them doing so. lion
interference is about all the Americans can ask or
Carranza troops are concentrating in considerable
force where they cannot possibly be of any assistance
in the pursuit of Villa. There is nothing whatever to
indicate that this concentration of Carranza forces is
a menace to the American border or to our troops in
Mexico. But the fact that all these Mexican troops
are being withdrawn from Villa's front, so as to let
him pass at will through the lines in trying to escape
the Americans, is enough to cause the Americans to lay
aside any lingering hopes they may have had that
they were to enjoy any considerable cooperation of the
All the warnings and mutterings of discontent on
the part of Mexicans of whatever faction only serve
to emphasize the first duty of the American govern
ment, which is to stay with the Villa pursuit to the
finish, if it -means going through to the isthmus of
Panama and maintaining a force in Mexico for the next
SO years. The Americans have shown that they have no
ulterior or sinister purpose, and they intend to prove
their good will and good faith by cleaning out ,this
bunch of murderers that is following Villa's leadership.
Such an act will be a greater service to Mexico and
Mexicans than to anyone else.
Felipe Angeles, Villa's former chief lieutenant, now
living in safety in the 1 Paso valley under the
American flag, says it was unwise to send American
troops to Mexico, and warns them to get out in 30
days or there will be war. It is just such talk as his
that promotes ill feeling and foments war passions.
Imagine starting a jackrabbit to run from here to
Oklahoma, with his own choice of route; giving him a
week's start; and then sending the 1 Paso police
force out to catch him. That would be comparable to
the chase after Villa, except that Villa has friends
who do not always tell the soldiers the truth about
It is 12 weeks since Santa Ysabel, 25 days since
Columbus. American troops are now in the very region
where Villa's band of assassins massacred the Amer
icans of the Cusi mining company. Possibly some
of the same bunch that committed that horrible crime
have paid the penalty at Columbus and Guerrero. But
the leaders are still at large.
Except for some of the pursuits after Indians in
earlier days, and possibly some British expeditions in
Africa, the world has never seen a man-hunt to com
pare with this one. The number of troops engaged
is probably larger than any similar expedition ever
had before, and the distance penetrated into the rough
mountain country without other means of transporta
tion than the army itself provides, gives this expedi
The Americans are comporting themselves with fine
regard for the feelings, the pride and sentiment, of
the Mexicans. Nothing has been done by the American
troops that can possibly be construed as hostile to the
country or its people. The pursuit is for a baid of
outlaw murderers, and the trail is still warm. The
troops in the field are determined to see the thing
through to success, if only they be left a free hand by
the Washington authorities. Military considerations
l will not bring about a pause in the chase short of
success It is to be hoped that political considerations
or false sentiment will not interfere.
If the chase be backed by Washington to the point
of success in its sole purpose, the net result will be
excellent. The Mexicans who have come into contact
with the American troops have gained a new idea
about their northern neighbors, and the word will pass
around, in spite of efforts of Villa and others to spread
falsehoods calculated to create ill feeling. Mexicans
have often asked what may be the limit of patience
on the part of the American government. It will be
seen that there is a point somewhere, at which for
bearance ceases to be a virtue.
If New York would keep its "journalists" at home,
New York would not have to worry about fake news
from "the border." "The border" has become insuf
ferably tired of the scoldings administered by eastern
editors who send their star fakirs out here with in
structions to "send a goo6,story, never mind the facts."
Things look different in the sunny morn from what
they looked the chilly night before.
Organizations to oppose "preparedness" are becoming
common all over the east. Women have inaugurated
their own anti-preparedness movements, but men are
taking an active part 'also, forming separate organiza
tions. In not a few of the colleges, factions have arisen,
one for, one against, preparedness. Naturally one looks
to the lists of names to find a lot of freak men and
women who are always "agin" something, and the seeket
is not disappointed, for the freaks are there. But
added to the freaks are a very much larger numbet
of men and women who really rate for something in
the country, and whose influence will be dangerous
when thrown on the wrong side of a vitally important
question like that of the national defence.
"Preparedness" narrows down to this: A navy suffi
ciently strong so that an independent fleet can be
kept on each side of the continent, each adequate to
meet and defeat any possible enemy fleet at sea with
out drawing from the other fleet; adequate port-defences;
a regular army of 175,000 to 200,000 men,
which would provide a mobile army of about 100,000
in continental United States; a national guard that
is really national; universal military training in time
of peace, and universal service in time of war; ade
quate preparation by way of materials for possible
combat as well as for suitable training; coordination
of the transportation and industrial resources and fa
cilities of the nation.
Let the issue be clearly drawn, and let the country
fight it out in the usual way, through a campaign of
education, and through the polls. The anti-preparedness
folks need not worry: there is mighty little danger that
the country will do anything to annoy them. The
country as a whole is anti-preparedness. It will take
a good deal of energetic effort to arouse the country
to a realization of the need as it actually exists.
It is a wonder the pacifists do not send Billy Sunday
over to Europe to fight the war out bloodlessly. Every
time Billy Sunday preaches, hundreds are knocked down
and out by anguish over their sina. Ambulances, trained
nurses, and first aid packages are needed in a rush
after every meeting. The reverend Billy might first
fight the Germans to a finish with their own con
sciences, and after their trenches were filled with the
unconscious, he could wipe out the British lines, and
so on through the 14 nations, and by the time they
all got up and out again on one graad glory trail, war
would be wiped out forever.
The old Sierra Madre, the great mother mountains
of the Mexican continent, the backbone of Mexico, en
ters into the sphere of war influence and will change
plans and specifications not only for airships but for
the wireless outfits. The high altitudes with peaks
rising in the clouds and deep canyons breaking down
to vast depths, the cold, the Uiin air, the eddies, whirl
winds, and currents are too much for the cleverest fly
ing machine wings or engine and too much sometimes
for the stoutest and strongest hearts of the air men.
According to some of the wireless operators, the
heavy ore deposits in the mountains deflect their deli
cate instruments and make the machines unreliable
though this sounds like pure romance.
The old mother mountains are neutral Mexican or
American is all one to the mountains hut so far Villa
has the best of it because his quickness and skill and
insight are in no way dependent on delicate machines.
The Americans will have to match wits and perseverance
and swiftness with the bandit. Modern science of war
is not going to help much in the Sierra Madre.
Passengers on the steamship Adriatic when they
arrived at New York, told of the excitement which the
wireless operator caused by posting on the ship's bul
letin board a Teport reading: "United States army
missing for two days." After all on board had become
sufficiently excited by this news, and Europeans had
been duly aroused, the' operator appeared and corrected
the dispatch by inserting the word "aviator" after
"army." There was a general sigh of relief.
What a wonderful system the president must: have,
to be able to distinguish the lies sent in by liars on
his payroll from other lies of other liars. The president
said in a speech in New York that his personal contents
would create a sensation if revealed.
"They are all good towns" said the experienced trav
eling man after he had finished giving a new coifler
in the field a catalog ofc fOO or so stopping places in a
few hundred miles of El Paso. And so they are.

In Payment For Steel Bond

New York, April 3 One of the larg
est checks that has ever been paid in
the United States passed through the
New Tork clearing house during the
past week. It called for the transfer of
funds amounting to $43,138,131.11 In
payment for bonds of one of the steel
companies which have recently been
sold by a syndicate of bankers.
So far as could be recalled, there have
been only four other checks drawn In
the whole history of American flnaice
for amounts approaching that repre
sented in. this check. The largest check
which has ever been drawn In this
country was for $65.075. 000 in payment
for a sale of bonds ftf? one of the large
railroad companies, which also received
a check for fl9.000.000 early last year
as a result of a bond Issue. In May,

King Death is marching on. It seems a shame, when all the kings were suffer

that generals should wade around in blood and fur and grease, and Death go
marching on. And still the soldiers fight and slay, their little wage to earn;
and where the vine and figtree were, the lurid beacons burn; the sleepless chil
