Muiuluy, .May S. 1916. THE ONLY WAY FOR MEXICO TO AVOID INTERVENTION IS ALSO THE EASIEST (BY H. D. S.) SEVENTEEN weeks since Santa Ysabel, nine weeks since Columbus, three days since Glcm Springs. The record continues to accumulate new disasters, new outrages. Two of the three latest entries relate to invasions of American soil by armed Mexicans bent on murder and pillage. The Texas episode is Only one of many in which Texas soil has been invaded. The long series of attacks in the Brownsville country must not be forgotten. It u most unfortunate that, when the Brownsville difficulties began, the American troops were not im mediately permitted to cross the border and pursue the invaders to death or capture. That failure was one of .a long series of errors arising out of a false concep tion of our national duty and our national rights. Surely no argument that will stand examination can be brought forth now against retaining the American troops in northern Mexico. It becomes increasingly necessary for the Americans to police that region, and the area of operations will have to be considerably ex tended if the problem is really to be met squarely. The time of occupation should by all means be left indefinite. It would be almost as tragic a mistake to set a time limit for withdrawal, as it would be to withdraw at Once. The principle must be enforced. The right of Amer icans to protect their border and their own nationals by whatever means may become necessary, must not be compromised, waived, or qualified. It is desirable to remain on friendly terms with tha people and the de facto government of Mexico so long as that can be done without compromising our national rights. The American people are patient, to a faulty and tbey are not clamoring for the general military occupation of Mexico. But Mexico must by some means be made to realize that there is but one alternative to the peaceable cleaning up of bandit groups in northern Mexico by American tioops; that single alternative is general military occupation of Mexico, the taking charge by the Americans of the government and administration of Mexico, domestic and external, and the direct and forceful control of Mexico by the United States for so long a term of years as may be necessary to insure a reasonable degree of stability and safety upon th withdrawal of the American forces. There is but one way for Mexico to avert this drastic remedy, which, however beneficial it would be to Mex ico (and it vould be greatly so), would nevertheless be resented by many Mexicans and would be subject to misconstruction throughout Latin-America. That ona way is for Mexico to accept the situation as it is and to allow the United States forces peaceably to police the disturbed regions and to cross the border at will in pursuit of bandits, without any show of resistance by the forces of the de facto government. The Americans have abundantly proved their benefi cent intentions. There, is no sentiment in the United States to justify aggressive acts against Mexico for any purpose of territorial or financial gain. Mexico must make up her mind to accept these assurances, for there is no evidence to justify any other opinion about th attitude of the American people. A good deal is heard here on the border about "m tervention," and certain important newspapers in the United States are busily trying to stir up intervention sentiment. But the feeling in the country as a whole is strongly opposed to it, and congress, as at present constituted, never would consent to it, except as a very last resort, after every prospect of successful avoidance had been exhausted. Intervention is, as yet, neither necessary nor desirable. The Herald regards the Texas outrage as calling for no other reprisal or corrective action than th Columbus precedent plainly calls for. The troops al readv in Mexico should be strongly reinforced. Tha border patrol should be strengthened. The American accordingly. Bat it is altogether probable that the punitive and police work can be carried on a long time, with discretion, without arousing more than formal protests from the Mexican government, and without arousing any more hostility among the people than now Wherever the American troops penetrate, their ex ample and influence are wholly good. They inspirs Tespect for the United States, not merely for its power, but for its beneficent actions. It is very unfortunate that on some occasions, as at Parral, the Mexicans seek to interfere with the legitimate purpose of the American troops; and Americans will not view with equanimity any acts whatever on the part of de facto government forces that may result in killing or wounding American soldiers. The Americans expect to take their chances with Vilhstas and other bandits, but they are bound to as sume that Mexican de facto government forces are friendly. The two countries are at peace, and ought to remain so. If the peace is broken, it win be solely by the act of Carrania forces and on no account by the act of the Americans, who have but one purpose in going upon Mexican soil, and that is to punish ths raiders who have violated American soil and mur dered American citiiens. The Herald sincerely hopes that no agreement will be made with representatives of the Mexican de facta government, that might hamper the legitimate work of the American forces in Mexico, or lead to a defeat of the purpose of the expeditions. This is a critical time, when too much debate with foreigners about our national principles, rights, and purposes may easily lead to greater disasters than those our givernment "Bundle Day" Tuesday Short Snatches From Everywhere forces should have a freer hand in pursuing bandits, and Vceks to avert. It is a time for demonstrating that mey snuuiu oc oaciteu up w vuc huul uy imc nasmug ton government. The Glen. Springs bandits must bi pursued on Mexican soil to death or capture. If these expeditions, no matter how carefully con ducted or how valuable their genuine services tc; the lav abiding people of Mexico, should finally lead to serious resistance and clashes of government forces, the United States would have to accept the situation and proceed we are prepared to enforce what we believe to be right. rnenaliness is Dy no means inconsistent with firm ness; and to be firm just at this moment is the surest way to demonstrate our genuine friend.ship toward Mexico. o St. Louis is paying public school children a cent a hundred for dead flies and thinking to make money at it Don't forget that on Tuesday the Associated Char ities will collect bundles of clothing, especially winter clothing, contributed by the people and sent to the various school houses. Every winter there arises a pressing need for cloth ing, among the poor. Last winter it was necessary to buy a good deal of clothing, with money that was badly needed for other things. The Associated Charities believes that at this season of the year a great many families are discarding worn or out-of-style winter clothing, and that if this can be collected and stored until next winter it will go far to relieve distress. Clothing is wanted for men and women, boys and girls, and infants. Any article of clothing will be wel comed, provided it be clean and serviceable. The people are urged to send their bundles to the various school houses Tuesday morning, and the Asso ciated Charities will collect the bundles with motbr trucks and automobiles. o Nothing escapes, the wild silk worm of the Congo is not to be allowed her simple life undisturbed, loving her offspring and unhurriedly weaving silken cradles for them in the sun, nibbling a leaf when she is hungry with no man to say when she shall work and when she shall rest.
