Was Right And Refused To

Washington, Sept. 8. Nearly two
Weeks have passed since Woodrow
Wilson laid his plan for the pacification
of Mexico before Congress and the
country, yet none of the evils antici
pated by the hostile interests in the
United States as a result of the "policy
of abondonment" has come to plague
the Administration. On the con
trary, anothef Mexican "crisis" seems
to have been safely . parsed
The SQUthen republic is mire tran
quil than it has beer, for months.
Business concerns in this country are
no longer alarmed. The hysteria in
Congress has wholly subsided and the
Administration has ti.rned its atten
tion to other problems.
All this has been the result apparent
ly of the President's masterly diplo
macy. It has come following the de
livery in the House before a joint
session of Congress of one of the most
remarkable messages bearing upon
foreign affairs this country ever heard
rom the lips of- its President It
hasfcome because the President found a
way of meeting a desperate s.tu tion
without forfeiting the conscience of the
people of the United States on the one
hand, or of incurring the hostility of
the Mexicans on the other.
This ctlm does not mean that the
Mexican problem had been finally dis
posed of. There is still a state of
revolution existing beyond the Rio
Grande. Anarchy prcvilas in many
provinces, Brigandage goes unchecked
in others and much fighting is expected
throughout the whole republic before
absolute peace is restored.
It does mean, however, that the
President and his advisers successfully
resisted the clamor for intervention;
they stood firmly against any move
that might k.vJ to war; they refused
to recognise f. pre visional administra
tion in Mexi. j Ci;y that came into
' existerce thru gh riurder, and they
did all this witho- t giving encourage
ment to the rebels or without antagon
izing the Federals.
Many of the President's closest
friends had misgivings as to his ability
to steer such a course as this. The
Executive himself may have doubted
the success of his policy, but he made
up his mind that his program was the
right one to follow and he stuck to it
determinedly, regardless of defiant
threats from Mexico and persistent
warnings from Congress.
At the outset Hucrta served notice
upon this government that he would
not negotiate without recognition, but
he did negotiate. He sent word that
Governor Lind would not be received;
but I.ind was received. He insisted
that no answer would be made to the
Wilson proposal. An answer was made
Everything that Hucrta said he would
not do in the beginning he has since
done.
A HAND ON THE SHOULDER.
When a man ain't got a cent,
And he's feeling kind of blue,
And the clouds hang dark and heavy
And ' n't let the sunshine through
It's a great thing, O, my brethren
Fcr a feller just to lay
His hand upon your shoulder
In a friendly sort ' way.
It makes a man'feel curious,
It makes the tear-drops sta,rt,
An' you sort o' feel a nutter
In the regions of the heart;
You can look up and meet his eyes
You don t know what to say
When his hand is on your shoulder
In a friendly sort o' way.
Oh, the world s a curious compound
With its homy and its gall,
With its cares-'and bitter crosses
But a good world after all.
An' a good God must have made it
Leastways, that is what I say
When, a hand is on my shoulder
In a friendly sort o' way.

A large fofee of laborers were put

section was in fairly good shape by
Sunday. Thousand of spectators

structure, As stated in the last issue

as rapidly as could be expected under
the circumstances.
The linemen employed at the city's

again at work yesterday repairing the
ires which were broken by falling
mbs and uprooted trees. Practically
of the breaks on the line which
urnishes the current for the incandes

motors have been repaired and the line
in service. However, there were so
many breaks on the line over which
the current for the arc lights was
transmitted that these have not all
been repaired and thie city is in dark

with arches of the smaller lights.

storm- and flood of last Wednesday
which played havoc all along the coast
The first authentic report was re
ceived here yesterday when William
Patton, a citizen of Goose Creek Island
passed through the city enroute to
Wilmington. Mr. Patton told a
Journal reporter that Goose Creek Is
land was entirely submerged anc'
that the greater part of the stock on
the island was drowned. However
no lives were lost. The island was
covered in from two to five feet of
water and many of the buildings were
demolished.
At Rose Bay and Jones Bay the storm
did greater damage than at Goose Creek
Island. According to Mr. Patton's
statement not an animal was left alive
except a few which the o w tiers' succeeded
in getting into heir homes. At Brant
Island and also at Maw Point the water
rose to a depth of several feet and
the boats of many of the fishermen
at those places were either sunken
or were taken away by the wind and
tide and have not been seen since
Many of the people lost all their
clothing and food and their condition
is pathetic. A consignment of food was
tiken down from Vandamere Saturday
morning for the benefit of the stricken
islanders and this was equally divided
among those who were in the worst
plight. Brant Island, Jones Bay and
Maw Point are at a very exposed point
and grave fears were entertained for
the safety of the inhabitants of those
places.
Oriental Citizens Clearing Away
. Wreckage
S. W. Everitt, proprietor of Neuse
Rive Inn at Oriental, was among
the business visitors in the city yester
day and he told a graphic story of the
storm and flood at that place. Mr
Everitt's hostelry is at a very exposed
point ' along the river front and at
2 o'clock Wednesday morning his
family and guests were taken out in
boats and transported to he home of
a neighbor some distance away where
they spent the remainder of the night.
i.onsineraDie damage was done to
property in and around Oriental,
but the citixens began clearing away the
Wreckage on the following day and the
town has about resumed its normal
appearance.
Mr. Everitt says that the crops
right around Oriental are in bad shape
but that the total damage to the crops
of the county will not be more than
twenty-five or thirty per cent.
MISS WILSON IN UPPER BERTH.
Men Refuse To Extend Courtesy To
President's Daughter.
New York, Sept. 9. Miss Eleanor
Wilson, daughter of the President of
the United States, occupied an upper
berth last night on her journey from
the Grand Central Station to Cornish,
N. H., the "summer capital."
Not even the prestige of the White
House could alter the rules of the Pull
man Company or move a single pas
senger with a lower berth to make way
for the daughter of the President.
Several men appealed to turned their
back on the proposal that they give
up their lower berths and al ow Miss
Wi son to sleep below.
Miss Wilson came down from Corn
ish to spend the week-end with Mrs.
George Howe, wife dt her cousin. Mr.
Howe made an effort yesterday morning
to reserve a lower berth for Miss Wilson
on the 11.10 p. m. train. He could only
get the promise that if some one should
give up a reservation Miss Wilson
might have it.
"I think it is an outrage,' Mrs
Howe said after the train had pulled
out. "I am mortified to think that
there was not one gentlemen or a
Democrat on that train with a lower
berth at his disposal."

New York, Sept. 8 Facing the most
critical situation tha has yet con
fronted it, the Fusion Coromiftee of
107, at a meeting of its executive
committee that almost broke up in a
row, voted yesterday to release all
ts candidates from any obligations
mplicd or otherwise, and allow them
to accept indorsements on any other
municipal tickets.
This action leaves John Purroy MitS
chel, the fusion candidate for Mayor,
free to accept the indorsement of the
Independent League, which ' he has
already refused and George McAneny
and William S. Prendergast to accept
any offers from Mayor Gaynor to go on
his ticket. Mr. Mitchel, it was said
on reliable authority, will accept the
Hearst offer, although before he does
so he would like to have Mr. McAneny
and Mr. Prendergast go on record
first as accepting the Gaynor indors -ment.
The hand of William R. Hearst, who
forced the selection of Mr. Mitchel as
the fusion committee's candidate for
Mayor in the first place, was seen all
through today's developments. In fact,
Mr. Hearst, through his representative,
John J. Hopper, practically demanded
that the committee insist that Mr.
McAneny declare himsc f one way
or tne otne and tnat tne nision
committee publicly announce that so
far as it was concerned Mr. Mitchel
is free to take the Independence
League indorsement.
The executive committee did just
what Mr. Hearst demanded. There was
a minority which fought hard against
taking any further diictation from Mr.
Hearst.
Mr. Mitchel, when he refused he
Independence League indorsement, felt
sure that Mr. McAneny, Mr. Prender
gast and the other iusion candidates
would in rctu n refuse all blandish-
ents put forth by other parties. But
Mr. McAneny, who wa appointed
spokesman for all the other candidates
took just the opposite stand. (There
upon Mr. Mitchell felt that he was
justified in reversing himself and accept
ing the Hearst indorsement. But Mr
Mitchel rea'izes hat it will invite
criticism if he takes the Independent
.eaeue indorsement before Mr. Mc
Aneny accepts an offer from Mr
Gaynor. As. Mr. McAneny refuses to
say just what he is going to do, pressure
is being brought to bear upon him
through the fusion committee to an
nounce his position.
Mr. McAneny, however, is placed
in the position of not being able to
announce what he is going to do until
some proposition has been made to him,
and as Mayor Gaynor is on his way to
Europe, he will have to wai until
the Mayor returns. In the meantime
he Independence League has until
tomorrow night to file its designations
with the Board of Elections and only
until September 16 to have its designa
tions go on the primary ballot. On
the other hand, the Gaynor people have
until October 20 to file their designa
tions, being an independent ticket,
and are therefore in no hurry.

Colebrook, N. H., Sept. 10. For a
few brief hours today Harry K. Thaw
was again at liberty, but tonight
is under arrest at Colebrook and will
be committed to jail some time later
in the night after a warrant charging
him with conspiracy an extraditable
offence, ha been prepared.
Early this morning Canadian officials
at Coaticook took Thaw from the jail
at that place where he had been con
fined since his sensational escape and
dash across the country from Matte
wan, placed him in an automobile
and drove with all haste to Norton's
Mill on the Vermont line where he
was freed.
Thaw protested against being taken
from his cell, thinking that it was a
trick of Jerome to get him back to
Mattewan and the guards had great
trouble in subduing him. Once
but of Canada Thaw was allowed to go
where he chose.
Securing an automobile a short time
after his release Thaw set out in an
Eastwardly direction and succeeded
in reaching LolebrooK wnere ne was
taken into custody.
The prisoner has engaged counsel
and has already outlined plans for a
prolonged legal battle. His coinsel
have taken steps to secure a writ of
habeas corpus and will apply for this
tomorrow before Judge Chamberlain
at Lancaster. Thaw spent the entire
afternoon in the office of attorney
Thomas R. Johnson who is to appear
for him. One of his first acts was to
communicate with his mother and
sister at Montrca' and Sherbroke.
Jerome, Thaw's foe, was totally
unprepared for the action of the
Canadian authorities. He is expected

John Humphrey, of Jasper, had a
