THE. L'ANSE SENTINEL. o SHUT DOOR Oil Li PRESIDENT'S ' MEXICAN REPRE 8ENTATIVE WILL NOT BE REC OGNIZED BY HUERTA. OFFICIAL EDICT IS ISSUED Unless Llnd Brings Recognition of Huerta Government, He Will Be Persona Non Grata In the South ern Republic. ' Mexico City, Aug. 8. John Llnd. special representative of President Wilson of the United States, now on his wajr to Mexico, will be persona non grata to this government, unless he brings credentials In due form, "to gether with recognition of the govern jnent of Mexico," according to an offl cial statement Issued late Wednesday Jilght. Manuel Garza Aldape, the minister of public Instruction, who Is acting as minister of foreign affairs, Issued the statement and had It transmitted to United States embassey. It was also Ilpatcbed by the Mexican government o the United States and to Europe. "J'he statement follows: Dy order of the president of the republic I declare as minister of Tor . lgn affairs ad Interim, that If Mr. Und does not bring credentials In due Iform, together with recognition of the fiovcrnment of Mexico, his presence in this country will not be desirable." Increased antagonism has been aroused among Mexicans toward President Wilson's plan for the pacifi cation of the republic by the latest siews .from Washington that the ob ject of John Llnd's visit hero as the perrcnal representative of President Wilson, is to conjult with prominent -Mexicans and advise them that the only, basid on which Mexico will be .m-oghlzed by the United States Is the elimination of President Huerta. Eurllcr reports that Mr. Llnd pro lan d to deal with Jiuerta, perhaps by anakin? the direct uggestiou that he r( Ejpn, WPre received with indignation y Mexican ofliclals. it wad pointed out by a prominent Mexlcai. that in the former caso the Covtrnment might not consider Itself obliged lo act until the suggestion was actually put forward by Mr. Llnd, but that In tho second case the gov ernment would be justified In charac orizing him as one who was Inciting Mexicans along lines of sedition and in applying tho pernicious foreign ex pulsion clause of the constitution. Mexicans familiar with latcrnatlon al law are reluctant to believe that Mr. Llnd's Instructions aro for him to deal with others than the author ized officials of the de facto rovern- inent. These officials are still firm In their ussrtlou that ,410 suggestions what ovrr involving mediation or the resig zialion of Huerta will be accept able, and that tho best that Mr. Llnd can hopo for in this respect is to be Ignored. However, the anti-Huerta ele anrnt, which Is not prominently in evi dence In the capital, Is skeptical re jgardir.g the firm stand by the admin istration. Washington. Aug. 8. Wilson's ac tion In sending John Llnd. former gov ernor of Minnesota, to Mexico as a special emissary In the present situa tion, was attacked In the senate on Wednesday by Senator Clark of Wy omlng. who declared "something elso must he done by tho administration tn tuarnntee adequate protection to Americana."

Details of leg islative activities of the widest range, extending from the hoin distrlctti of members of congress to, the White House and capitol were revealed on Tuesday when the letter files of the National Association of Manufacturers were read by the house lobby probers. Discussing the recent sundry civil bill, with its provisions prohibiting the expenditure of certain funds for the prosecution of farmers' and labor unions under the Sherman law, Emery wrote to John KIrby, president of the association, on March 7, 1913, after President Taft had vetoed the bill: "I want to emphasize as hard as 1 can the Importance of lining up for a tremendous demonstration when this bill reaches President Wilson, as It un doubtedly will, with the same provision in it. You will then have an early op portunity to decide whether the glit tering Democratic motto, 'Equal rights for all, special privileges for none,' means anything, or whether the admin istration has surrendered completely or will merely turn over the depart ment of labor. "I note, by tho way, your reference to a letter from C. W. (Post) on the question of a protest over the appoint ment of Wilson (secretary of labor). A protest on this subject is a mere waste of breath, and on the whole, I am in clined to think that the whole purpose of this department will be shown up quicker with the unions in control of It than In any other way. "Gompers will run It characteristic ally with a high hand, and If the whole thing does not smell to heaven within a year I shall be very much aston ished." In this same letter Emery advised KIrby: "If you have any Idea that Taft would have vetoed this bill of his own motion, get over It. A list of pub lic men who had 'pie In this $113,000. 000 appropriation bill Included many prominent men In both houses."

BUST H0RTFI.1ER Effect of Tariff Reduction on Agricultural Products. Just at This Time, When Change In Economic Conditions Makes Pro tection Most Needed, It Is to Be Taken Away. The popular agitation against ths high coBt of living has been used as an excuse for proposing material re ductions In the tariff on agricultural oducts. If all the benefits prophe sled would follow upon the passage of the Underwood-Simmons bill, these re ductions might be Justified, but it 1 safe to say that the consumer is doom ed to disappointment At the same time the effect on the agricultural producer is going to bo more eerlou than anticipated by many legislators. , A decade and more ago the great percentage of American agricultural products were sold In foreign markets. Now a change Is coming over our eco nomic life. The time Is almost at hand when we will cease to be n exporter of agricultural products. Our vast production will be required to feed our own population. At the same time unlimited areas are being opened up In Canada and Argentina, and mil lions of bushels of wheat and other products are producod In these coun tries each year. From the consumer's point of view the free Importation of food products may be desirable, but from the point of view of the Amer ican producer It is not desirable. New, when he is In need of protection, he finds It being taken away from him. Blundering Tariff Revolutionist. The discovery that the estimate of the production of cotton manufactures on which tho hcu3c ways and means committe based Its proposed revision of the tariff was four hundred million square yards out of the way is said to have shaken the faith of the senate finance committee In the competency of tho house ways and means commit tee to perform its work. The discrepancy represents a value of forty-6even million dollars. If the tariff slashers were so far from the fact la this Item, why may they not have made equally serious errors in other particulars? Undoubtedly they have. Is It safe to let the prosperity of American industries and tho happi ness of tho working people those in dustries support hingeupon a revolu tionary change In the tariff proposed by men who have been detected in miscalculation that might be ruinous? The tariff board method of calculat ing the effect of revisions, which was favored by President Taft. would have been free from such mistakes. Country Not Behind Wilson. Last fall the country voted by more than a million and a quarter majority against, not for the tariff policy of tho Democratic party. It voted by more than a million and a quarter agalust, not for the method of tariff changing adopted by the present administration. Instead of an "overwhelming major ity" for President Wilson he lacked more than 2.400,000 votes of any ma jority whatever. Ho did not have a majority in any state outsido of the south and the far southwest. Country Has Needed Rest. Let us no longer underrate the geo graphical capacities and capabilities of Arizona.
