a living without years of time and

hard blows have driven them in.
And some are sure to be "broke" if

northern state, after looking all over
South Florida, have decided that
Lowell and vicinity is the best farm farming
ing farming country they have seen, and have
about decided to settle there.
Claude L'Engle seldom refers to
foreign matters, but when he does
his views are worth reading. Fol-
lowing is the way he looks at the j
Mexican and Japanese situations:
President Wilson has not called
me in council, nor has Secretary of
State Bryan asked me how I felt
j about either the Japanese or Mexi
can questjon therefore, what I
have to say is in no wise connected
with the foreign policy or the lack of
the present administration. The
Mexican question is always before us
on the front pages of all the news newspapers,
papers, newspapers, and there is a constantly re recurring
curring recurring recrudenscence of the Japan Japanese
ese Japanese question. There is in conse consequence
quence consequence much talk about both going
on in capital circles at all times.
I believe that intervention in Mex Mexico
ico Mexico by the United States is bound to
come and that as it was inevitable
from the beginning it seems to me
it would have been better for the
president to have pursued a DO-IT-XOW
policy instead of the waiting
policy he has chosen. I am the
more reinforced in the belief I have
expressed Of the inevitable of ulti ultimate
mate ultimate intervention by a small item
that appeared in the papers last Fri Friday
day Friday or Saturday. It was to the effect
that the French government had an announced
nounced announced that it would look to the
United -States government to protect
French interests in Mexico.
Germany, England and France
have more invested in Mexico than
have the citizens of the United
States. England particularly is vital vitally
ly vitally interested because England has,
like this country, decided to abandon
the use of coal as fuel for war ves vessels
sels vessels and in the future to rely upon
oil for fuel for all new ships and for
all old ships that can be converted
into oil burners.
And the only supply of oil on which
England can rely is in Mexico, which
is the only reason why England owns
oil wells in Mexico.
As soon as England with its vital
interests at stake and Germany be being
ing being pressed for action by the large
number of German citizens with
enormous holdings in Mexico, or
France with the same reason as Ger Germany,
many, Germany, any one of them become con
vinced that the United States WILL
NOT take charge of the Mexican
situation, and decided that one
acting for all or all acting together
MUST DO IT and in pursuance of
this land marines and sailors from
the fleet on Mexican soil, this coun country
try country will be brought up with a short,
sharp turn, face to face with the
Monroe Doctrine. We will then either
have to assure these countries or any
one of them, that we will bring order
into Mexico or fight. Unless we take
the only other alternative and aban abandon
don abandon the Monroe Doctrine.
When this state of things come to
pass the United States WILL INTER INTERVENE
VENE INTERVENE IN MEXICO; because it can cannot
not cannot abandon the Monroe Doctrine,
and the little trouble that would be
kicked up in Mexico by the invasion
o! -the armed forces of the United
States would be nothing compared
to the terrible effects of a war with
one or three of the greatest Europ European
ean European powers.
Now as to Japan I cannot avoid
the conclusion that the Island Em Empire
pire Empire is bluffing, when thru its minis minis-sters
sters minis-sters it shakes its fists under our
nose over the comparatively unim unimportant
portant unimportant question of colonization in
the United States. This cannot be
an important question in Japan, be because
cause because it got territory enough as a re result
sult result of the successful war it waged
with Russia to supply ,the needs for
colonization for many years to come.
It can be merely a question of na national
tional national pride with the Japs, not want wanting

lower in the sisterhood of nations

than any other country. The Japs
think they are as good as any one
on earth and see no reason why they
should not be accepted by the Cau Caucasian
casian Caucasian races on absolute political,
social and all other kinds of equality.
The fact is that this country should
allow no kind of foreigner to settle
here who can't be amalgamated with
the Anglo-Saxon race now in posses possession
sion possession of it, without lowering the
standard of future generations. -We
cannot maintain republican institu institutions
tions institutions unless we keep the races that
made them pure; and we cannot
have any hope of national integrity
if the United States will in the fu future
ture future be divided into groups of people
of different races, traditions, moral
standards and religions. So great
is the Japanese pride of race that
they cannot tolerate any lying down
together unless it be on the terms
that the lion dictate to the lamb.
Sooner or later the United States has
got to say to Japan "No, we don't
want your people coming over here
and settling among our people. This
country belongs to us. We, as a free
and independent nation have a right
to run things here to suit ourselves
and to say who shall not share it
As we have got to say this to Jap Japan
an Japan and to all other undesirable peo people
ple people with whom we cannot amalga amalgamate,
mate, amalgamate, it seems to me that the soon sooner
er sooner we say it the better. And I be believe
lieve believe that when we do say it plain,
and say it loud, there will be no
more Japanese question. i
Surely we were not born in the
woods to be scared by an owl, and
we need not be afraid- of any war
that Japan is able to engage in. I
do not go quite as far as one of our
dignified senators did when he said
that when this country had been
engaged in war with Japan four
hundred years, and the name Japan
had become only a tradition and its
people one of the lost races, we of
the United States could still be fight fighting
ing fighting and able to maintain our armies
from the resources of this country;
but I do say that this country can
fight indefinitely on its own resourc resources,
es, resources, and the poverty of Japan is so
great that it would be exhausted in
a year's fight under the present con conditions
ditions conditions of warfare.
Shortly after the treaty of Ports Portsmouth
mouth Portsmouth was made ending the war of
a few months between. Russia and
Japan, it leaked out that Japan was
about all in, and could not have
maintained its armies in the field
even a few months longer.
So I do not see any reason why we
shouldn't settle the Mexican ques question

years of history that you are unfit
for self-government and we will

Some of our country friends resent
the traffic regulations of the citv
(which by the way are generally in
terpreted to them liberally), but it
would save them from trouble and
danger if they would familiarize
themselves with them. When the
fire alarm rang Saturday afternoon,
the curb at North Magnolia street
was lined with the country people's
teams, with the horses tied to nearly
every awning pole and hitching post
so thickly that the rear ends of the
wagons were pushed far out in the
street. Consequently, when the fire
wagons came along, they had no
room, and Mrs. James Stauffer of
Shady Grove, whose horse became
frightened in the crush, came very
near losing her life. Xo serious
harm was done, but the traffic squad
should keep wider lanes on the
streets in rush hours, for if some
country team is wrecked and its
driver injured or killed, even by a
fire wagon, the city will be blamed.

The New York Herald tells the
following of the Goethals family,
which is quite appropriate at this
The soldier and administrative

Washington Goethals for three gen
erations. He is claimed now by
many cities and states, but he is a

Swiss at t"hat. His grandfather was
a surgeon in the French army and
was with Napoleon at Austerlitz.
His own father, John Goethals, was
born in Switzerland and moved to
Amsterdam in his early boyhood. In
184S he came to Brooklyn where,
in 1858, Col. Goethals was born.
The origin of the family name is
interesting. In good Dutch it is the
equivalent of he English "stiff neck necked,"
ed," necked," and was conferred on the first
of the present line, who was one of
the crusaders, by an early king of
Flanders. This man was fighting
side by side with his king when a
foe struck him a mighty blow. The
sword was turned aside by the armor
and the man kept on fighting. A
second blow was struck, but still the
man kept on fighting before the eyes
of his king, until the battle was won.
After the conflict the king called the
warrior to his side and commended
him for his prowess.
"Sire," said the soldier, "I break
before I bend."
"Henceforth," said the king, "thy
name is Goethals the stiff necked."
The name stuck, and for centuries
the family motto has been "We
break before we bend."
It was in 18 75 that Goethals first
became fired with an ambition to go
to the military academy.
At the academy he soon won a rep
utation as a "digger" because he was
at his studies early and late. The ef effectiveness

1880, when he was graduated so
high in his class that he was commis commissioned
