The Depth of Woman's Love.
No man can fathom the depth and profundity of
woman' love from the fact that It la a proposition
that Is absolutely unfathomable It has heen the
making; of many men who were disposed to go
wrong and It has heen the undoing of thousand of
men who In their hearta desired to d right. When
a woman really loves a man he will go with him
Into the very depths of human degradation she
will assume the robe of scarlet and wear It with the
pride of a queen If It la nereasary to be with the
man she loves. And ahe will aland shame and re-
proach share dishonor and degradation with a will-
ingness that Is heroic for the privilege of being so
loved In return Hhe will come down from the high-
est plnnaclea of life to stand In the ceasHola of
ahame and degradation with the man she really
loves making his ahame her ahame his dishonor
her dlahonor. And here la a caae In point.
A few nights ago the police officers of Nashville
Tenn.. raided the bawdv house of that city. In
one of them they found Malcolm It. I'atteraon until
recently governor of the state of Tenneaaee. Ex-
Oov Patterson was asleep In a drunken stupor and
lh newapai rs of Tenneaaee have been full of the
arandal. Tha wife of Ex-Oov. Patterson whs at the

Fortified by such love a this the former Tennes-

The Work of McAdoo.
When President Wilson cslled William Mc Ado
Of New York Into h cabinet as secretary of the
treasury there were many hints and whispers aa tu
the selection being a sop to Wall atreet thst ths
new secretary ana but a tool of the New York finau
clers. snd during the Wilson sdmlnlstrstlon there
would he more pandering to the money trust than
ever before. But a change must have come over the
spirit of the dream of those who did this whisper
ing if they have kopt up with development since
McAdoo aaaumed hla dutlea. What the new aecr-
tary of the treasury has accomplished during hla
brief Incumbency af th treasury department Is thua
outlined In i Washington newspsper dtspatrh:
"Hecretary McAdoo haa been chased through th
jungle of Wall tret in the past and he has done
a little hunting for big game In the canyon just off
liroudway himself. He knows sll the sign and ho
can trail frensled finance much more silently an1
successfully thsn the Boston broker who sought to
enrich himself hy telling the public how the giants
of Wall street do business.
"Hence It was no big task for ths sscrstsry of tha
treasury to follow out sll ths ramifications of the
neat plot that waa devised to send the sdmlnlstra-
tton's currency reform measure onto the rocks by
pounding the life out of the governments 2 per cent
bonds and thua terrify the country banka. which
hold two-third of thla laaue.
"Shortly after coming into office Secretary Mc-
Adoo decreed that government depoattorlca ought to
pay Interest on the m"ney I'ncle Bam placee In their
vsult Wall street and a few bankers made a loul
nolec. hut the people applauded and when the sec-
retary announced that he was going to Inrreaae the
amount of money rtepoelt In the hanks there weie
mure applliallon than could be accommodated.
"Ilia next move was to eapoae the unwarranted re-
ports being sent out from financial centers to ths
efle t that there was a financial string i. threat-
ening and it was doubtful if monsy could be had to
finance the heavy crop movement la the North and
South lie punctured that myth which haa been
pressed into aervne every year whan cropa are
abundant by informing the country banka that 'e
i 'hi In th. 1'nlted State treasury an Issue of l -U00.0t)0
In emergency currency that would be put
into a lion the very moment 11 a-pared nrraaari
Nothing has been heard of that "strlngsncy" since.
"Hi latest move aa stated baa been to make clear
to everybody Ibat the federal gav eminent la ready
unit willing to take etsry step necessary to hold :'
bunds st par lie gives assurance to holders of th-t
t per cent bond which have had circulation privi-
lege for banks huldlag them that these bonds sr

"Up to .iat. this ka a pretty good record for a aee-
rwtary of the treasury who H was whispered In da-k
corners had been put In th Wilson cabinet through
Wall street Influence Gradually Is Secretary of the
Treasury McAdov winning ths rep.-t. confidence
snd esteem of congress. That he haa gained a strong
hold on the nUntr at large seema so certain that It
Is useless to refer to It It was the patronage puasle
that gained for him tha III will of many repreeenia-
tlvea and senators at tha outset.
"They now have some to realise that he haa beam
merely carrying out the policy of the administration
and are beginning to ewtlmat him at hla true worth.
"This administration may be making some blund-
r In disposing of the job h it MrAdoo has passed
that up to lrident Wilson Hs can take ordsts
aa well as give them. He meets members of con-
gress in s frank manly way and all the red tap
haa been removed from conferences with ths head
of the treasury department. He never beats about
the hush but comes directly to th point and aaya
what he will or will not do and thus saves a raet
amount of tlma for himself and the congressmen
They are coming to like the innovation."
Gen. Felix Diaz Talk:

sat the embassy secretary Jose Romero of ready
tongue and a quick analytical brain.
"What would be the result of recognition by the
United. States of the Huerta government In Mexico?"
the general was asked.
"It would facilitate the relatione between tha two
countries" he said.
Then the subject went back to the statement that
Huerta cannot he a candidate for Prealdent. Hera
his answers were ready but not entirely compre-
hensive until sieved hy many interrogations. Then
he finally said:
"Congress enacted a law just before Porfirlo Dlax
tepped out of office which prohibits a Prealdent
from ascending to the chief executive aeat of the
nation a second time. Only by a rescinding act of
congress csn this law be nullified it la not likely
thst this will occur"
"But Huerta is only provisional President" aatd
;h Interrogator "and the law Is not speclflo in refer-

Oen. Dlax did not answer Immediately. Finally
he said hi voice sharp In tha stillness that had set-
tled over the room:
"That 1 true. But If he were a candidate he
would violate the spirit of the law. And whether
it be written or not there is ths dictate of conscience.

"There Is no such thing as 'anti-American senti-

American Losses in Mexico.
Amerlean low in Mexico In the last three yeara
of constant disorder have been of two kinds first.
Miss lis due to robbery and destruction of property
snd demand for money and second. loaeea due to
laok of labor Interruption or destruction of the
systems of communication such aa railway and
telegrapha and ths abeencs of government
greet part of Mexico losses of the first kind are
I he moot spectacular but ths second .ar unqu
thynably the greater says the New Tort Sun.
The loss of Americans In Mexico have heen
estimated at varying sums all of which ars nothing
but gueeae only In the state department at Wash
Ington Is there In existence an accurate record
what has been suffered In the mere destruction Of
Amerlcsn property In Mexico. This record remark
able In Its completeness snd detail la kept highly
confidential and has not been dlacloajed to any one
outside of tha departmental service. It ta admitted
by state department officials that the loaaes of
Americans In Mexico have been very groat.
Borne Idea of the extent of the American
may be arrived at In another way. There ware '.n
the beginning of the upheavals In Mexico more then
on billion dollars gold of American money Invented
In Mexico. These Inveetmetn were cared for by
thousands of American It Is now estimated that
one third of the Americans formerly In Mexico havo
left that country. It la not fata- to ansums that all
the Americans who have fled from Mexico have
lost all they owned there but for the present
least the majority of American properties in that
country represent a dead loaa. The state depnrlmen
for months has been assisting destitute Americans by
the hundreds to get out of Mexico.
There Is a vast deal of misconception In the
United Statee regarding the reason for and the cir
cumatancea of the American loeoea in Mexico. .Ths
popular idea im .hat Mexico and the realdents
Mexico sre suffering from "civil war." and that the
American and other foreign losses are only what is
to be expected as the fortunes of war. This Idea Is
far from the truth.
The Americans who are losing their possessions
and Incomes In Mexico are the victims of a natl m
which haa turned to robbing Itself.
The revolution led by the late Francisco Msdero
bred again In Mexico a class of professions! bandlta
and thlavee and brigands who have found It so essy
In the past three years to raid and rob and pillage
and burn under the guise of "revolution " These
men will not work and are In favor of no government
al sll which purposes to Interfere with their occu-
pstlon. They are rarldly draining the country of al
Its resources: they have already paralysed Industry
through a great part of Mexico.
To understand something of what Americans
have endured In Mexico It rs necessary to explain
how the eo-cal!ej "rebels" operate. In any gl
locality some local man with a little more spirit and
daring than his fellows procures arms and puts th ni
tr the hands of whoever Is willing to Join him. Th. y
slip out. sometlmea on horseback sometimes afoot
and suddenly appear upon some ranch.
Ten men with guns In their hands can mske
uncomfortable for the owner of a ranch and Ml
family. Suppose they demand money under the
penalty of death? Who is going to save the ranch
man? To save his own life and ths lives of his fam
Hy he gives the marauders what they demand and
beg them to go away.
Perhaps the bandits do go away but they seldom
leave without helping themselves to whatever Is re
movable that they desire especially provisions cat
tie. horses and arms.
Thua by one stroke these ten men have equip
ped themselves completely with provisions arms.
and money. With the money they can go to the
neareat town and plunge Into a wild debauch. When
the money is gone it is simple to go to another ranch
and perform the same trick all over again.
Or the leader may be ambitious. With the equip
ment and the money obtained In one raid he can
easily attract to his band men who would rather
live without working. Perhaps he may assemble
a large party of desperadoes that he can venture
to attack a small village. The few local police or
perhaps tha handful of federal soldiers In the little
towns have learned by experience that non-resistance
is the simplest course. so the fighting seldom amounts
Ons reason for the freedom with which these
rebel band are permitted to rob and burn is the
willingness of the average Federal soldier tt
come a rebel at the first opportunity. In the case
of the larger hands comprising aeveral hundred
men each the majority of them are working for pay.
These rebel leaders find their occupation no profit-
able that they can afford to pay out of their loot
a dally wags to the men who serve under them.
The rebels pay dally; the Federal government
promises to pay monthly. The one offers an Igno-
rant peon hard service poor food and probably no
pay; the other holds out a free life In the open pay
once a day and no end of opportunity for good living
and loot. It is no wonder then that many Federal
detachments have melted away as soon aa they ap-
proaohsd the rebel bands they were supposed to de-
stroy. At first these bands were content with robbing
Mexican ranchea and plantations. But now In tho
districts where marauding haa prevailed most the
Mexican property ownera have all moved to the
cities leaving their ranches idle and unproductive
Consequently the roving bands hsve heen obliged to
turn more and more to property owned by foreigners
with the result that American losses are Increasing
snd more and more Americans are beseeching the
consulates for aid In gstting out of tho country.
Most American Investments In Mexico are III
ranches farms mining properties and oil field With
regard to the mining and oil properties the pro-
cedure le always ths same. The camps are invaded
by the rebels and the general manager almost aj-
aays sn American la presented with a demand for
any flOOO gold. He refuses. Then perhaps aa at-
tack is made and the safs In the company's office
broken open and its contents taksn.
Usually ths manager prefer to let the rebels
work whatsver dean ruction they pleaae rather than
risk a. fight in which they and a few American as-
sistants are hopeleasly outnumbered. 8omstlmes the
rebels rssort to kidnaping and holding the manage-
gf some other responsible pereon for ransom Usu-
ally th company store Is looted by the marauders.
With farms snd ranchss ths procadur Is quits
aimllar When Federal troops are stationed to guard
a particular properly In Mexico. It la usual for
them to levy an assessment upon the owner of the
property thus protected. Then the Federals Anally
Sooner or lalsr along will come the leader of a
rebel band The ranch owner may protest that he
has psid his asaessrurnt whan ths lewder demands
protection money He may ahow a receipt for the
money hs haa paid. The answer la always ths earns:
"Thst Is from ths government and we don't rscog-
nlie their receipts We control things around here
and you must pay us If you want to he protected "
If tbe manager paya the demands and receives a re
ceipt guaranteeing that no member uf thla particu-
lar band hali disturb his property.
But ibis dues not end the matter In the ma -
JorHy of caaae the rebel leader informs ths head of
another band that this particular ranchman haa

vious performance Is repeated tho second leadsr

ago when 1 was living at Carlsbad; came over here
to see our baseball boys boat your ball team and
I liked El Paao then. But It waa not even an imita-
tion of the present El Paso. Pennybaker John Tay-
lor and Dr. Vilas were here then. But I am told
they have moved to California after getting rich in
El Paso. Capt. Hart Maury Edwards Jim Ms

Two weeks ago at a hotal In Ssnta Ft I chatted
with a shoe drummer who had Just left El Paao

That train came through from Chihuahua all

me It did- He came through with It. and brought
1200 moro soldiers to strengthen the Juarex bar
racks. They did not see a single rebel between Chi
huahua and Juares and the train Is going back

It Is not to the credit of Consul Edwards." says
a public auto driver "that any of the boys will au li-
mit to being boat out of their fares across the river
without calling on the consul for help. Mr. Edwards
seems to look upon every American in Mexico ex
cept himself as a criminal. He acts as ir Ameri-
cans are offending even for being on that side of
the river. The hack drivers and chauffeurs keep
ss far away from the consul as possible and when
one of their passengers is held up they appeal for
aid to Mexican cltlsens of Juares instead of calling
on our alleged American consul. He Is a dead one.

"Don't you know" saya Maurice Ooldoft. of New

ant In some of them you can get a porterhouse
steak for SS cents which you would pay 60 cent

of them were reasonable In their charges for meals.
El Paso Is better equipped with hotels and reatau
