John A. McShann. who la a personal
Wend of Colonel Vt C. Greene, received
I telegram Saturday morning from the
American consul at F.i Tex., which
hows that preae report are exaggerated.
The consul Informed Mr. McShane that
nly three Americana had been killed. He
Mmflrmed the report of the burning of the
lumber yard, but said nothing of the re
ported dynamiting of the smelters.
The massage said that Governor Tsabel
tt the state of Bonora, in which Cananea
II situated, arrived at Cananea at 3 o'clock
Baturday morning and soon secured con
trot of the situation.
Mr. McBhane spent two weeks with
Colonel Greene. t the camp and knows
something of conditions there. He says
the Americana dominate the town, and as
fine American la equal to aeveral Mexi
cans there Is no danger of a maasacre.
Mr. McShane estlmatea the value of the
lumber yard, which contained about 2,000,
DOO feet of lumber, at about 160,000.
Meyer's Interesting; Statement.
Walter Meyer, Thirty-third and Burt
streets, who Is a salesman for Armour A
Co.,, spent five years following the mining
business in Mexico and returned from
Cananea only two months ago. Mr. Meyer
la greatly surprised by reports of the
race war and Is at a -oes to account for
It. He was a foreman in the Oversight
mine, one of the Greer. properties, and
before that served as tlmekeepr. During
five years In Mexico he made his head
quarters at Cananea and was there most
of the time. He says:
"It la almost Impossible for me to be
lieve that tha Mexicans have caused the
trouble and bloodshed reported', and I
think reports are exaggerated. The work
men In the eight or nine Greene mines,
which constitute probably the largest cop
per producing property In the world, are
Americans In the ratio of about one to
two Mexicans. Altogether, there are about
15.000 employes. The number of Americans
given, 6,000, Is approximately correct. With
this proportion of the races I cannot see
now the natives got the upper hand.
No Tronble at Honor,
"The Mexicans of Sonora are easy for
Americans to get along with. The two
races mingled freely and without friction
except for occasional quarrels and killings
such aa are common to any mining camp.
The Mexicans showed a great disposition
to organize and Join fraternal societies.
'Why they should get Infuriated over a
strike for increased pay is beyond my
comprehension. They are paid on the
average $3 a day, Mexican money, which
is' more than twice as much as native
miners get in any other part of the coun
try. At mines near Mexico City which I
visited the pay waa lesa than half as
"much and the houra longer. The men In
the Greene mines worked but eight hour
a day. They were not unionised, a union
do not flourish In Mexico.
Greene Meat Well Treated,
"The Greene employes in nd around
Cananea were very well treated and I never
heard any complaint on that score. The
company owns all the land on which the
city I built and practically all the house,
tore and everything there. Houses were
rented to the Mexicans at reasonable fig
ure.. School a fine a any la our cities
were built for their children. In numerous
ways the miner and their families at Cana-

nea were many times better off than the
ordinary Mexican peon.
"When I left there had not been the
lighten sign of agitation or trouble.
Colonel Greene waa highly regarded by
everyone and a man much respected In the
community. It Is true, however, that Mex.
leans to a certain extent fear the United
States will eventually extend Its Jurisdiction
over their country as they have done at
Panama. Honor Is the border state. So
strong did this feeling become, that a law
was passed prohibiting Americans from
buying or owning land In Sonora. This wss
repealed after about two months' operation
and claims are now open to American as
well a to anyone else.

"I do not think the government of Mex
ico stirred up the trouble reported and in
fact. In my opinion, any such suspicion Is
ridiculous. Still 1 am at a loss to account
for the sudden thirst for blood by the Mex
icans. "I knew Metcalf, one of the men reported
killed, and. hi son, not his nephew as
stated, who was also shot, according to re
ports. Metcalf was the rental man as well
as In charge of the lumber business. I do
not know that this fact caused any feeling
between him and the native population.

what hi Irresponsible advisers promised.
France made certain concessions. It Is
true, but held faster than ever to the en
tente with England. Then came the Alge-
clras conference, and with It the new de
velopment of German policy, which has so
far had simply disastrous results. Italy
refused to follow the German lead at
Lageras, with the result that It was prac
tically told by the Berlin press when the
Vesuvius disaster occurred that It wa a
visitation of Providence for Its attitude at
the conference. To the Russian note re
garding the attitude of its representatives
at the Morocco conference the Wtlhelm-
strasss replied by boycotting the Russian
loan and expelling 'Russian from German
territory by hundreds a day.
The net reault of the kaiser having taken
counsel of hi Irresponsible advisers Is that
he has alienated Italy, Incurred the emnlty
of Russia and undone in France the work
of thirty-five years. To this policy may
be credited the Illness and death of Baron
von Rlchthofen and the serious illness of
the Imperial chancellor. Both of these
statesmen felt all the time that they were
surrounded by Intrigues, with paralysing
effe.-t on their policy and Injury to their
health. Prince Buelow had, before his
breakdown, ao far regained the upper hand
that' he had obtained the dismissal of Herr
von Holsteln and the early retirement of
