JOHNSON FUNERAL DIRECTOE Motor and Horse-drawn Equipment Gov. Cantu declares that he wants no ill-feeling creat ed between his people and those across the line in the United States, and this is in perfect keeping with all the letters and telegrams from Gov. Cantu since the depre dations and murders commit ted in Columbus. As stated in these columns Mon day, it is morally certain that we have nothing to fear from Lower California as long as Gov Cantu remains in con trol of tha.t territory. Quite naturally he will have to deal with a lot of fools and hot-heads just as is the task of the United States, and just as is the task of Gen. Obregon and Gen. Car raiiza. It is to these that all the trou ble is due. A man of Obregon's stamina might be able to cope with the situation, even at this late date, if he had ple nary powers. But Carranza has sur rounded himself with a lot of incom petents, placed thousands of armed men under the personal command of men who have made fighting a pro fession, and who thrive only when fighting is going on, that it seems al most impossible for any semblance of order to be maintained in Mexico un der such leadership. All the more is the pity. With the national guard mobilizing in every state to meet any aggression by Carranza, there is no martial spirit on this side of the line. There is no hostility toward the nation to the south of us. There will be none of the "Gott Strafe Mexico" spirit, but if it becomes necessary for the United States to protect its borders from in vasion and to back up its expedition now in Mexico, the northern republic will well perform its duty to itself and to Mexico. For the Mexican people as a whole, for those upon whom the war would bear most heavily, we have only the deepest pity. God save them from their "chiefs." Isaac George, brother of Calvin M. George, of Somerton, died at Los An geles yesterday. 5. P. 1ST QUIT THE SWITGHING i COT The Examiner has no desire to com plain of the activity of the S. P. rail road company more so than of another public service corporation; but some thing should be done to compel the Southern Pacific company to respect the Yuma public thoroughfares in larger degree. In early days. Yuma was a frontier town and ladies walked in the middle of the streets with their escorts to avoid the drunken bums who lined the Main street sidewalks. Then Madison avenue was essentially a railroad .treet and was used for switching, and there was practically no Yuma west of the tracks. All this, in modern Yuma, has radi cally changed except that the South ern Pacific railroad company still uses Madison avenue, which is rapidly becoming a main business street, as a yard for switching purposes. To be specific, on Monday, for sev eral hours, in the middle of the day, trains were switched back and forth and crowds of business people were compelled to wait at Second and Madison for many minutes. At 3:00 o'clock, about forty, people were held ten minutes, all good-natured enough, perhaps, considering that the sun is somewhat warm at 100 in the shade. But when is the Southern Pacific company going to recognize that Yuma is a city and not a sidetrack? The city council might take the matter-up at San Francisco headquarters, and put an end to all these pioneer day methods. FRESH BUTTERMILK ilwajs pure and fresh. Fresh butter nilk at Creamery.
