American Girl Compelled to Marry
Mexican Rebel Doesn't Appear
to be Annoyed
Torreon, Mexico, Dec. 30. When
Pancho Villa, who swept the federal
forces from Juarez and then led his
victorious troops south to Chihua Chihuahua,
hua, Chihuahua, 'taking that city, the largest in
the northern part of Mexico, wanted
a wife, he merely went back' to his
old bandit methods to get one. He
chose an American woman and or ordered
dered ordered her to wed him on the spot.
She did, according to the story here.
But so far she has not complained
to any American consul, and no
tion has been taken by the Unitd
States government.
Villa, at the head of some of his
troops, entered the American Cloth
ing Company office and saw the
young woman cashier of the place.
He decided that he wanted to wed
her, and the story goes that he sent
for a priest, who was compelled to
perform the ceremony. The affair i
created little comment here at the
time, for it was merely another il illustration
lustration illustration of the methods of Villa
when he was a bandit and since he
has risen to power as an insurgent
against the government.
When Villa left Torreon on his
northern campaign his wife rode be beside
side beside him in the finest carriage he had
been able to seize. She seemed con-
) tented. It is understood she .has ac-
j companied -him cn his campaigns

the world is indebted for the great

that these peoples are the colonizers
of the world, they are modern Romans,
whose strength lies in their limbs not

in their swords, and this is due to their

noble motherhood. "Healthy parents,"

this the parents muet be cleanly wed.

us to the registration feature of the
There has been considerable ob objection

have the registration, this enormous
expense can be saved, but, without
it, it seems to be impossible, because
in the first place, voters are not all
living today where they were when
they registered, some of them many
years ago. Again, there is no oc occasion
casion occasion for a democratic voter to send
literature to a republican voter, for
example. There is another reason
for requiring biennial registration.
If we are to maintain a system of
primary nominations, we ought to do
so honestly.
One of the grounds upon which
objection is made is that it will be
expensive to register voters every two
years. As the bill was originally
drawn, it would have been no more
expensive under this law than it has
always been, but, even as amended,
the expense need not be great.
It has been suggested also that it
is too much trouble to the voter to
register so often. In the first place,
every patriotic voter ought to be
willing to undergo a slight inconven inconvenience
ience inconvenience in order to insure the purity of
the ballot, and to give a candidate in
moderate financial circumstances an
opportunity equal to that enjoyed by
a candidate of ample means. But, if

more of it under this act than here heretofore.
tofore. heretofore. It is no more trouble to reg register
ister register than it is to vote. If we use
the old registration books, a voter
will remain registered until the coun county
ty county commissioners find out that he
is either dead or has moved away.
This system has enabled men to vote
under the names of other men; to
live in one place and vote in another,
and even to live in one county and
vote in another, or both counties. It
was easy enough for a person who
had no right to vote to personate a
duly qualified foter, before this law
was passed. All such a person had
to do was to vote under the name of
someone else who appeared upon the
registration books to be qualified un unless
less unless the inspectors or some bystand bystander
er bystander knew he was not the person he
pretended to be; and. even then, if
he said he was such a person, there
might be some doubt about it. But,
under this law, when a person offer offering
ing offering to vote is challenged, he is re required
quired required to acquaint the inspectors
with his party affiliations, his occu occupation,
pation, occupation, his age. the state in which he
was born, and in addition sign his
name. Now, no man could do all
these things fraudulently without
being caught, and if he does them
and is caught he is subject to the
pains and penalties of perjury. It
would not do to have only one new
registration, because all the evils we
are trying to remedy would reap reappear.

provided for primary elections is as
easily understood as the ballot pro provided

it is simpler. The objections which

etate of such feverish excitement that
he forgot to sleep? Here, in the most

the Girl once more were thrown to together

that not only promised the most de delightful

that a scrape like that is enough to
