say they do so much and in reality it
doesn’t amount to anything. The back

| //ILL AMERICA REDEEM MEXICO?
Now that the election is over and
Mr. Wilson has been entrusted with
the reins of government for another
four years, there is one piece of work
that will forcibly demand his atten
tion. and that is the pacification of
We are well aware that the Mexican
problem presents great difficuJties,
view it from whatever angle we may.
But they are difficulties that may and
can be overcome, and as time goes on
it becomes more and more apparent
that it is up to the United States to
The truth of the whole matter is
that Mexico is suffering from the same
misrule from which we freed Cuba—
the decadent Spanish rule.
Mexico is a republic only in name.
Not the first principle of popular rule
has ever prevailed in that country.
The forces that have always controlled
her destiny have been those be
queathed by Spain. With misrule and
oppression on the one hand, and sul
len hatred and resentment on the
other, it is small wonder that she has
been in a perpetual state of unrest
President Diaz was the only ruler
in her history who ever maintained a
semblance of order, and he did so
solely by the use of the mailed hand.
Since his day poor Mexico has seen
naught but anarchy. Anarchy pre
vails there today—anarchy and
Argue as we may against the idea
of intervention, the fact is daily be
coming more apparent that it is the
only solution. That enlightened Amer
ica should sit idly by and make no ef
fort to remedy the intolerable state of
affairs prevailing there, is inconceiv
able. Mexico is a blot on the Western
civilization, and only Western civiliza
tion can erase that blot.
Of course every American wishes
that the redemption of Mexico may be
accomplished by peaceable means if
possible. But the progress being
made in that direction appears to the
average mind as negligible. The mat
ter seems no nearer a solution today
man u urn nity years ago.
From the days of President Buchan
an until today, every president has had
the same difficulties to contend with
there. Each has had his vexing “Mexi
can question," and it is remarkable
how similar have been the circum
stances that each has had to face.
Not only the present generation,
but the unborn generations of the fu
ture of that unhappy land demand of
tis inat we-confer trpau them some of
the blessings that our forbears be
queathed to us.
Twenty years ago Cuba was in as
pitable condition as Mexico is today.
We have remade and rehabilitated her,
and today she is enjoying that peace
and prosperity which her natural ad
We can do the same for unhappy
Mexico. We should do the same for
her. But will we do it? ,

Stage life, with its unfailing appeal
to the public, is intimately disclosed
in the BlueBird Photoplay, “Bobbie
of the Ballet,” with Louise Lovely, the
girl whose appearance lives up to her
name, impersonating a ballet girl who
resists temptation under strong pres
sure and triumphs over those who,
would wreck her life. There is a pa
thetic appeal to the hearts of humani
tarians in this girl’s struggles against
heavy odds and an example of up
rightness for girls who may be weak
ening under the stress of their sur
roundings. In working out an inten
sely interesting story the producers
have adopted several sensational
methods to intensify the appeal of a
great moral lesson embellishing the
visualization of the narrative in beau
tiful photography. Saturday, Dec. 23.
