Our Mission in Mexico 

N the occupation of Vera Cruz by the armed 

forces of the United States the inevitable 

happened. For months the administra- 
tion’s policy towards Mexico had been headed 
toward intervention. The occupation of Vera 
Cruz launched the United States upon the 
task of securing for the Mexican people peat eful 
conditions and a stable government. Eager 
though the country had been for a more vigor- 
ous policy at Washington, it is significant that 
there was prolonged debate in the Senate be- 

fore the resolution was passed justifying the 
President “tin the employment of the armed 
forces of the United States to enforce his de 

mands for unequivocal amends for affronts and 

indignities committed against the United 
States.” The resolution introduced by sen- 
itor Lodge, and ably supported by Senator 

Root, sought to ground our future course with 
Mexico, not simply on Huerta’s refusal to make 
full amends for the insult to our flag at Tampico, 
but on the broader foundation of the 150 Amer- 
ican lives which have been sacrificed, the mil- 
dollars’ worth of American property 
which has been destroyed, and the condition of 
inarchy in Mexico which has made it impossible 

lions of 

to secure by diplomatic means the protection of 
ife and property. The Lodge resolution, which 
iled of passage, covered the whole field and 

would have adequately justified our course in 
the eyes of all nations. 

Although the former policy of the administra- 
tion in dealing with Mexico has proved to be a 

failure, this is not the time for criticising a mis- 

taken past policy. Let us not, however, make 
. failure of the more aggressive policy now 
idopted. If there had been any hope on the part 

President Wilson that the Constitutionalist forces 
vuld be relied upon to eliminate Huerta in case 
ve shut off his intercourse with the outside world, 
that hope was disposed of by the communication of 
Carranza, ‘‘ First Chief’’ of the Constitu- 
Army, criticising the United States Govern- 


vent for landing an armed force at Vera Cruz. 
rhe task before us is not simply the elimination of 
Huerta, but the vastly more difficult problem of 

pacifying and stabilizing Mexico. Our purpose is 
not to conquer Mexico, but to restore the Mexicans 
to their rights as citizens of a republic, and to secure 
stable government capable of protecting the lives 
ind property of foreigners. The country stands be- 
ind President Wilson to a man in his repeated declara- 
tion that the United States has no thought of “selfish 
ivgrandizement”’ in Mexico. Admiral Fletcher’s 
roclamation on occupying Vera Cruz, calling 
open the people of of that city to co-operate with him 
1 the preservation of order and in the protection of 
ife and property, is a fair statement of our attitude 
»ward the Mexican Republic as a whole. However 
reluctant we have been to enter upon such an under- 
taking, we are now committed to it beyond recall. 
Watching and waiting are things of the past. The 
ltimate ‘ depends upon the 
romptness and vigor with which it is pushed. Our 
responsibility towards Mexico we cannot now escape. 
We owe it to the world also to complete what we

a strong hand or your republic will be as fearfully 

plundered and laid waste by barbarians in the 
twentieth century as the Roman Empire was in the

learned professors and the university men

were in nobody’s way. 

What has followed since the demagogue has been 
in the ascendant in American politics? Extrava 
gance, graft, ‘pork barrels,” quack 
legislation, destruction of vested interests, industries 
torn down, express companies driven out of business 
railroads on the verge of ruin, a quarter ol a 
men out of work, a serious cut in wages impending 
in the steel industry, the American flag off the 
seas of commerce and the Nation’s honor trailed in the 
dust, in spite of the protest of our patriotic president 

This is the work of the demagogue. We repeat

~ Will War Mar These Peaceful Scenes? 


EDITOR'S NOTE—This is the seventh of a notable series of articles written by the 
managing editor of ‘‘Leslie’s,’’ who was sent to Mexico to make an impartial 
study of the conditions in that distracted land. Mr. Splitstone’s reviews of 
Mexican affairs have been widely noticed by the press. This is the last article so 
far received from Mr. Splitstone. Suddenly his contributions ceased to come 
to this office, and he himself disappeared in the heart of Mexico. On or about 
March 20th, Mr. Splitstone intended to start northward from the City of Mexico 
for Torreon, 700 miles away, then about to be attacked by Villa's forces. We 
understand that a number of other correspondents of American newspapers 
and magazines, as well as photographers, started with Mr. Splitstone, on a 
train carrying Federal troops. These men were therefore with the Federal 
army, and as railroad and telegraphic communication was not entirely 
broken off, they should have been able to send back messages 
to the United States. For about five weeks not one word came 
from them. Happily on April 27th a telegram was received 
from Mr. Splitstone announcing his safe return to 
Mexico City, but saying that the date of his leaving 
for Vera Cruz was uncertain. He apparently was 
being detained ** incommunicado’’ at the Mexi- 
can capital. Leslie’s however has met the 

emergency. Mr. Stanton Leeds, a capable 
young journalist has been commissioned to 
act as its representative with the Atlantic 

Fleet. He sailed recently on the dreadnought

OLDBURG, July 6, 1912. 
Dear Bob: 

FRANK \ If you 

think you can make me 

sore by sending news of your ad- 


vancement to a managership, go 

right along and rub it in. 

Bob, old man, my lid is off, my mitt is out; I salute you! 
You write that you could make things hum were it not 

for a couple of house pets who are not only non-productive 

All I have 

to say in reply to that is that you’re a bum manager if you 

but actual obstructions in the way of progress. 

can’t make things hum in spite of them 

Leadership consists in the ability to bring order out of 
chaos; knowing how to pick up a lot of loose ends and 
them into definite form. It stands to reason that 

weakness in any body of men that is willing 

there must be 
to be led; that very weakness is your strength, and yet you 
complain of it 

\ real leader must inspire confidence and enthusiasm. 
He ought to be human enough to sympathize with the short- 
comings of his followers and strong enough to command 

ready compliance from the 

given, but all are interesting.

You've seen the balloon filled with hot-air go up, but 
if you stuck around long enough you also saw it come

it’s either a ruin or a curiosity. 

Tie up your perfectly good arm for a few months and 
when you remove the bandage it will be useless. Easy 
jobs make incompetents of those who fill them; that’s the 
hustler’s consolation, as well as part of his compensation. 
Only fools stick to sinecures. On general principles noth- 
ing comes easy that’s worth having. What is easily had 
is lightly treasured and therefore easily lost. 

As I said before, the bigger the house the more opportu-

About two years ago some one told a sporting writer 

on a Chicago daily that Hoblitzel, of the Reds, had plenty 

of money and was a great society favorite in 

Cincinnati, spending most of his evenings in a 
dress suit and leading dances. This sounded 

pretty good to the scribe and he decided to 

get up a special Sunday story about this 
young society leader, who was just playing 
the national game for the fun of it and to kill 
time between his social engagements H 
sent a telegram to “Hobby” which read as

Therefore you can imagine the dismay, 
not to say disgust, with which the audience, 
at the close of her charming address, heard 
this person say, ‘‘ Now I presume that you 

sometimes expect your lecturers to remain | 
a few moments and meet your members, |

One of them voiced the sentiments of most

Now how much better it would have been 
for this lecturer to say “I should very much

to leave at once. Please ask me to come

Inquiries and Answers 

India G., Columbia, 8. C I hear that a school 
for teaching German housekeeping has been opened 
in New York. Please tell me how German house 
keeping differs from other housekeeping. Do the 
German women keep their houses any cleaner 
wash their clothes any whiter or oftener, keep their 
persons any cleaner, cook any better, use more 
economy, preserve better order than the women of 
any other nation? 

The lady at the head of the school of 
which you have heard says: *‘We hope to pre 
vent to some degree the frightful waste in 
American households, se different from any 
thing that you ever see in Germany Be

American girl how to locate a leak in a 
water-pipe, mend a broken door-knob put 
up a shelf, drive a nail properly, and to be 
‘handy’ about her own house Of course 
we shall show her how to scrub, wash, iron, 
cook, darn, and give first aid to the injured.”’

There are, to-day, men in Guadala 
jara, as well as in most of the other larger 
cities under federal control, who three years 
ago were worth millions, and who are now 
living on the charity of their friends because 
they have been forced to leave their prop

declaring forfeited the properties of many 
refugees who were unpopular

Yet only 30 miles away, at Manzanillo, the 
government is loading troops and munitions 
of war on transports for the disputed cities 
of Mazatlan and Guaymas, further north 

And at Manzanillo we saw our first 
glimpse of real military activity The hot, 
dusty, tropical town was full of soldiers 
They filled the dock, waiting orders to go 
aboard the transport They lay by com- 
panies in the shade of the principal build 
ings. Their women and children squatted 
on the dusty ground, or cooked their frugal 
fare over tiny fires. The Mexican army has 
no regularly organized commissary depart- 
ment The men are paid every day and 
with every body of soldiers travels a com- 
pany of women—and children, too—who 
rustle the country for food and prepare it 
for the men. Wherever the soldiers go the 
soldaderas go also. They are the hospital 
corps for the wounded of their own side, and

wounded of the opposing forec 

The soldiers at Manzanillo were mostly

| Both sides carried the Mexican flag. It 
iwas often difficult for a foreigner to tell 
| which force he had met with. Some of th 
Americans with business interests in the 
debatable country said they would just as 
soon meet with the rebels as with the federal 
troops, as one side was 1Ust as likely to rob 
is the other. This, however, must be modi 
fied, since wherever there were federal ofti- 
cers of any rank the men were kept well in 
hand, and property was pretty generally 
respected. No instances of the outrage ol 
women were reported against the federal 
troops, while the rebels were accused of 
numerous offenses of this kind 

Not until the wiping out of all organize: 
rebellion could the government at Mexico 
City undertake the extinction of brigands. If 
the civil war could be ended at, once it would 
take ten years to put Mexico back into that 
condition of peace and good order which 
existed up to the commencement of the 
Madero revolution. Is it any wonder that 
the property owners, the people with some- 
thing to lose, were crying for peace? Ten 
years to repair the destruction of three!

You Pay for the Name! 

The Iver Johnson costs about $5 more 
than ordinary bicycles. 

You pay that $5 for the name ‘‘Iver 

For if the prestige of 
our name were not at 
stake we could use welded 
instead of seamless tubing; 

castings instead of drop 

forgings; hastily tem- 

pered bearings instead 

of the finest bearings 

that ever went into a 

bicycle; cheap paint 

and varnish instead of 

five coats of hand- 

rubbed enamel 

You pay. $5 extra because the name 
Iver Johnson guarantees a standardized, 
well made, fast and durable bicycle. O 
82-page book describes models from $30 
to $55. Juveniles, $20 to $25. 

The same argument holds good on 
Iver Johnson Revolvers. You can buy 
for much less a revolver that is just as 
shiny, hard and heavy as the Iver 
Johnson. You pay the difference be- 
cause you know that the name Iver 
Johnson stamped on the barrel assures 
you of absolute safety, positive accu- 
racy, a full equipment of unbreakable, 
permanent tension wire springs and

Hints to Money-Makers 

(Continued from page 452 

H., Glens Falls, N. Y The onsolidated 
Midway Chief Oil Co.’s stock is at present a 
speculation. It would be wiser to purchas 
stock of oil companies that are already well 


Kk., Providence, R. L.: 

par value of 
the Riker-Hegeman stock, both common and 
preferred, is $100. The par value of the 
stock of the Alaska Gold Mines (not mining 

is you write it) is $10. 

H., Calumet, Mich.: The price you paid 
for Rumely is high compared with present 
quotations, but the outlook for the company 

has grown so much better that I would not 
idvise you to sacrifice your holdings. 

B., Oil City, Pa.: Judged by its own 
statement and your experience with it, th 

Combined Oil Co., of California, is as vet 
1 speculative enterprise. Your case is an 
other illustration of the danger of 

stock in untried undertakings 

M. R. R., Gulfport, Miss.: It is evident 
from the circular that the mining enterprise 
has not begun to show any profit You 
ouldn’t get stock in a really valuable min 
for 10c a share In buying it you take 
mg chances on getting your money back 

W., Southport, Conn.: The Seaboard 
\ir Line Pfd. has been paying only 1 per 
ent. a year and its ability to pay more de 
ends on improvement in business condi 
ions and an advance in freight rates The 
four other stocks you mention are of the 

Standard Oil group and all are more of an 

nvestment than a speculation. 

G., Normal, Il!.: I can find no informa 
tion about the Peerless Oil Co., of Canada 
shares in which are offered to you at 4 
each, half of the price at which the stock 
was first offered to the public The pros 
ectus and the statement of the Company 
fering you the stock should make vou 

autious. There are dividend-paying oil 

ompanies whose stocks should appeal to 
you far more than that of new concerns. 

D., New York: 1. The Texas Co. con 
vertible 6’s would be a fair purchase at the 
rice you quote, but they have late ly been 
selling lower. These bonds are converti 
ble into stock at 150 and are redeemable at 

105 and interest after January 4, 1915 An 
mple sinking fund has been provided for 

them. 2. The National Tube Co. is a sub 
sidiary of the U. S. Steel Corporation and 
ts bonds are guaranteed by that organiza 
tion. They are subject to call after No 
vember 1, 1916, at 105 and interest. They 

ire a good investment. 

Brooklyn, N. Y.: The stock 
was issued by the Rumely

gricultural implements in the world. The
