Vast sums of German money
have gone to finance trouble

ed. It is declared German in
trigue was responsible for the
massacre of American soldiers
st Carrizal. It was known at
the time of Huerta's arrest at
El Paso that he had German
money behind him.
Evidently the Berlin desire
was to make trouble in Mexico
in order to harrass the United
ftates in every way possible,
Had the United States gone to
war with Mexico over the sub
ject it would have been exactly
what the plotters wanted. That
point should now be clear. Yet
our Hughes newspapers and
orators shouted lustily that
President Wilson was spineless
for not making war on Mexico.
It was declared by one speaker
in eastern Oregon that his re
election would be a "stain up
on the flag."
It is now clear that the G. O.
P. workers were wrong as to
the administration's treatment
of Mexico. They owe the presi
dent deep and lasting apolo
gies. Without knowing it they
were giving aid to a potential
enemy of the United States.

There is generally a silver
lining to a cloud if you but see
it; in the case of high priced
foodstuffs there is consolation
in the fact that the present
prices will stimulate productive
efforts that promise to relieve
the situation materially after
the coming crop is harvested.
Another feature of satisfaction
is the fact wages are being
generally advanced and there
is no such thing as lack of em
ployment these' days.
The Argentine view that
Germany is "clear crazy"
would be true had Zimmerman
ieally expected Mexico to se
cure Japan's aid and regain
her "lost territory ;" but the
German foreign minister could
not have expected such results.
He merely hoped to get Mexi
co started against us, so as to
make all the trouble possible,
