GLASCO LACE THREAD
THE MEXICAN BANDITS.'
The formal complaint of the Mex
ican government with regard to the
crossing of bandits into that coun
try from the United States deserves
prompt and careful attention. It is
a notorious fact that the neutrality
laws have been repeatedly violated
by such persons, and severe sen
tences have been inflicted upon
some of them by our courts, says
the (Jlobe-I)emoerat. The difficulty
of preventing offenses of that sort
where the conditions are so favor
able to the evasion of capture and
punishment is manifest; but it
is none me less incumbent on our
Kovcrniuent to do all it can in that
direction. It is impossible to patrol
the whole border effectually, but it
is not impossible to keep small de
tachments of soldiers at important
points und within co-operating dis
tances. The secretary of war has
lately ordered more troops X) the
Kio Grande for that purpose, by the
way, and it is to be hoped that they
will be so located as to provide rea
sonable protection against the ille
gal operations of the raiders. At
the same time, however, this service
should be judiciously performed.
It is no partof the proper business
of our army to do police work for a
neighboring nation and help it to
settle its domestic troubles. The
neutrality laws do not require us to
arrest men who are merely sus
pected of using our territory as a
place for the hatching of conspir
acy and tha organisation of revolu
tion. Action should be taken only
where the evidence of guilt is pos
itive and the identity of the accused
parties is well established.
There is every reason why a con
troversy with Mexico upon this or
any other subject should be avoid
ed. Our relations with that
country are now so friendly, and
the interestes of the two nations
are so much the same, that we can
not afford to have the situation
disturbed. ' President Dim is
