Lind to Mexico.
President Wllnon has selected a
strong man in John Lind of Mlnn-
sota to Bond as his personal ambassa
dor to Mexico, but what arc we to ex
pect from an ambassador with no
official status or authority? While
Mr. Lind will represent the president
personally, his capacity must bo
purely an advisory one becauso ac
credited to no government. Under
nuch circumstances no other foreign
minister there, vested with official
power, can have official relation
with a personal representative; and
as for the existing regime in Mexico,
Mr. Lind or the prvate ngent of an
American president refusing to
recognizo it is not apt to exert
much Influence. His chief service
must, therefore, be as an observer
and adviser on the spot ready to re
port and recommend to Washington.

several days ago thieves stole from St.

hundred dollars' worth of silver and gold

the now pastor for alms. He gave them

to desecrate the sanctuary by making It

Many women, under proUst, have bten

It Is a sensible appeal, but whether
it can be made fruitful of results Is
open to question. Yet the women
proceed on practical lines In making
their plea on economic rather than
purely moral grounds. The moral
reason are forceful, only not apt to
weigh as heavily with the manufac
