CARRANZA S AFFRONT
Carranza's remarkable attitude in demanding that for
eign nations deal directly with him and not through the
United States amounts to an invitation for intervention.
It is difficult to judge of Carranza's responsibility and
mental action, because we know little of his nature and
can calculate only faintly upon his ability to calculate the
effect of his present stand, but if he does not alter his
present position it will mean but one thing: that he pre
fers to precipitate foreign interference rather than to
continue with the struggle against Huerta.
On the other hand, Carranza may be merely acting
under the influence of Villa who dreads to show the body
of Benton and has sought Carranza's protection in get
ting him to take this stand. Delay is of value to Villa. The
greater the length of time which ensues before Benton’s
body is examined, the better are the chances for failing to
discover the cause of his death. If this is the true situa
tion Carranza will retract after so long a time, but he is
playing a desperate game and there can be no doubt that
his defiant attitude toward this government will cause him
Intervention looks nearer than it has ever looked be
cause Carranza's affront to this government is the first
good excuse for considering such a troublesome and ex
pensive course. Nothing can be lost by taking time, how
ever, and a great deal can be gained.
Thorc is work ahead in Washington, which, were it to
suffer the interruption and confusion of war,, would set
the country back in progress for several decades. The job
of going into Mexico and putting Its house in order is at
this time excessively inconvenient. It would be far more
satisfactory in every way to let the natives fight it out
between them, but when exigencies occur such as Car
ranza has brought about, our national pride is touched
and the obligations which our Monroe doctrine place upon
us make themselves felt.
To pretend to any indignation or resentment in the
situation would be beneath our dignity as a nation. It
would be like flying into a rage with a little child; but one
is often forced to discipline a child, even while amused at
their folly and indiscretion—so it may be with Uncle Sam
and Mexico, but no good can come of haste and we are
devoutly thankful that cool and level heads control things

Columbia, 8. C.—With thirty-five
Items vetoed, the appropriation bill
was Thursday received by the house
I from the office of Governor Bleaae
and the session was apent In consid
ering the passage of theae over tnu
veto of the chief executive. The net
result of these labors was that the
governor was sustained in four vetoes
and overrid len In two.
None of the Items la of much im
portance, few being above $5,000.
The message accompanying the bill
exhorted the member* to stand by the
governor in his expressed disapprov
al. Political consequences of failure
to uphold his vetoes were frankly re
ferred to. Promises of economy
made oft the stump which Governor
Blease said practically every candi
date had made, should be kept to the
people and there wa* no better way
of doing this, said the governor, than
by upholding his stands on the vetoes.
The house passed over the veto
of the governor the items providing
*I,OOO for repairing the heating plant
of the atate house and *3,000 for the
state hoard of medical examiners.
The veto was sustained on the follow
ing: For hooka and blanks for the
comptroller general’s office, *4,000;
for a new edition of the state hank
book. *2,500; for installing meters
and making repairs In public buill

the state librarian to make monthly
reports to the atate treasurer as the
other state officers.

Arson Charge Against
Negro Girl; Penalty
For Crime is Death
Atlanta, C».—The punishment for
arson In tieorgla is death, and the
law may put a negro girl of Atlanta,
Annie May Hayes, In the shadow of
the gallows. The girt who was a ser
vant In the home of Comptroller Hen
oral W. A. Wright has confessed to
the police that she deliberately set
fire to the Wright home Trom motives
of auger and revenge, after she had
been reprimanded for not doing her
housework as she should. I
According to the girl’s story she
deliberately threw a lighted match
into the upstairs closet of the home,
after seeing Mrs Wright leave the
house. The blase ignited clothing
and the fire spread. Only the timely
arrival of the fire department savel
the house, and aa it was the damage
amounted to over >I,OOO. The girt re
mained inside the house, instead of
running out, when the blase began to
spread, and her strange attitude
aiTuised the suspicion of the firemen
who tiirnol her over to the police.
This is the first case In many years
in which a woman has been accused
of arson. Although the death penalty
might be exacted under the law. there
is scarcely any likelihood that the
case will actually take such course.
There hasn't been a woman hanged
In Georgia since the civ 1: war, and be

years old is inducing the probation
leers to take a hand.
