Receives More Mail Than Any other
Congressman and Renders
Real Service
Scattered over every section of
Wyoming are hundreds of settlers,
surrounded by improved homes as fine
as to be found anywhere in the west,
who owe their occupancy of the lands
in large measure i not entirely to the
efforts of Congressman Mondell.
Many a Wyoming homesteader,
threatened with the loss of his land
either through some technical viola
tion of the law or the undue officious
ness of a public official, has saved his
home by appealing to the Congress
man from Wyoming. Every year, as
Government bureau exactions become
more strict and field agents more
suspicious, the Wyoming Representa
tive finds occasion to use his good
offices in behalf of the settler. And
never is the appeal in vain. If the
case has any merit, and the settler
can convince Mr. Mondell of his hon
est intentions to make the land his
home, the Wyoming Congressman
never lets up until the last possible
avenue of relief has been exhausted.
Mr. Mondell receives more mail
than any other member of congress.
His correspondence, frequently reach
ing 100 personal letters a day, must
be answered as fully as the circum
stances warrant; no letter may be
slighted; no thought of the writer’s
politics or standing in the commun
ity; every correspondence must have
as complete and full a reply as is
possible to give. Many of these
letters require hours of personal
research through the records; others
several calls on Department heads
and other officials; call for the ex
ercise of legal knowledge of the high
est order; others for extended writ
ten and oral arguments before the
General Land Office or the Secretary
of the Interior. The public land
cases particularly, are of such in
tricate nature as to require expert
knowledge of the law and rulings of
the Departments. Many Congress
men decline to take up these cases,
and turn them over to land attorneys,
writing their clients that as Congres
smen they “are not permitted to
take cases in which the Government
is a party.” Mondel! never uses
this subterfuge; his long experience
in land matters has made him the
best posted man in or out of Congress
on these matters, and in some way
he finds time to give the case the
attention it warrants. It is his pride
that every letter is answered, and its
recipient told to write again if there
is anything further about which he
can help in any way. In handling
this tremendous correspondence, if
anyone is to be put off with a short
answer, it is never the homesteader
or the man of small means. He is
given the most complete information
possible, and urged to write again if
what is sent is not fully clear.
It is not surprising that Mr. Mon
dell’s activities in behalf of the home
steader should have given him the
sobriques, hereabouts, of "The Home
steader’s Advocate,” for the Wyoming
representative was himself once a
homesteader. Raised on an lowa

red the capture of Vera Cruz.
Men from one of our ships had
been arrested at Tampico and
had been discharged with an
apology. But our Admiral de
manded a salute, which was re
fused. Thereupon the President
went to Congress, asking au
thority to use the armed forces
of the United States. Without
waiting for the passage of the
resolution. Vera Cruz was seiz
ed. It appeared that a shipload
of ammunition for Huerta was
about to enter that port. There
was a natural opposition to this
invasion and a battle occurred
In which nineteen
and over a hundred Mexicans
were killed. This, of course,
was war. Our dead soldiers
were praised for dying like
heroes in a war of service.
Later, we retired from Vera
Cruz, giving up this noble war
fare. We had not obtained the
salute which was demanded.
We had not obtained repara
tion for affronts. The ship with
ammunition which could not
land at Vera Cruz had soon
landed at another port and Its
cargo was delivered to Huerta
without Interference. Recently
the naked truth was admitted
by a Cabinet officer. We are
now Informed that “we did not
go to Vera Cruz to force Huerta
to salute the flag.” We are
told that we went there “to
show Mexico that w* were In
earnest in our demand that
Huerta mnst go." That Is. we
seized Vera Cru* to depose
Huerta. The question of the
salute was a mere pretext.—

Pickles was one of these useful gen

that he would do it “in a jiffy.”
“You just get me the cord and a
picturehook,” he said to his wife, “and

"There, now; there’s your picture

The part played by the women

participation of women in national
politics in American history, will be
planned when women suffrage lead

Colorado Springs for a three-day
conference of the National Women's

Whether these campaign forces
y will be thrown for or against the
nominees of existing political parties
■ or whether an independent ticket will
be formed is the decision to be made
at the Colorado Springs conference.
The status of the national suffrage
amendment in Congress also will be
considered at the opening session
August 10. It is expected that by
that time Congress will be on the
point of adjourning and the fate of
the Susan B. Anthony amendment
probably known. Should the Demo
crats in control of Congress fail to
act upon it, leaders here declared,
that will be an important factor in
the probable decision regarding sup
port of or opposition to the Demo
cratic party by the Woman’s party.
“Suffragists will judge the Demo
cratic party by its deeds anti not by
its promises, since being the party
in power it has had and still has the
power to pass the federal amend
ment,” was the statement of Miss
Alice Paul, chairman of the Congres
sional Union.
Under the direction of Mrs. W. G.
Pitkin, county superintendent of mis

The assistance of Rev. F. H. Throop
a missionary of Soochow, China, who
is in the United States on a furlough,
has been obtained and he will speak
Saturday evening, Sunday morning
and evening. Both Rev. and Mrs.
Pitkin are on the program for ad
