NO MERCY TO BE SHOWN BANDITS,

NEW YORK. Jnn. 16. Every member of the gang of Mexican bandits
responsible for the massacre of Americans at Santa Ysabel will bo exe
cuted immediately upon capture, General Jacinto Trevino, Cnrrnnza com

"They were made prisoners and shot to death."
Trevino wired the result of his visit to tho scene of the massacre, '

General Reina" participated. His dispatch continues:
"On the day of the massacro these headquarters ordered n regiment

Later they divided into small groups, some going to tho West, some to

CANADA MAY JOIN U.S.
Ex-Governor Asserts Dominion
Would Be Annexed if Ger
many Should Win War
An opinion thnt Canada would be an
nexed to tho United States in tho event
that Germany should win tho war has
been expressed by former Governor
Samuel AV. Pennypacker. and now a
1 i, Tniain Sprvlea Commls-
slon. In an open letter Issued In support
of his frank pro-German sympathies.
Tho annexation of Canada, tho Governor
believes, would bo desirable.
Tho letter lu part follows:
"It is conceded, even by her (Ger
many's) foes, that her people are among
the most efficient, energetic and culti
vated of nil those upon tho earth. She
has shown her capacity In tho events of
this war as she did beforo In literature,
science and commerce. Is It not better,
then, for mankind, that she should be
preserved, that her methods which have
proven to bo useful be extended, and
that her ihlluence bo expanded?
"In no crisis in tha past havo Ameri
can affairs been conducted with so little
good Judgment. We havo indicated a
lack of nblltty to measure the trend of
events and to appreciate our own Interest
which may be said to approach fatuity.
"In thi3 war, by maintaining a real neu
trality and indicating a proper sympathy
with a sturdy and capable people, strut
gllns for existence against seemingly
overwhelming numbera-of British. French,
Serbians, Belgians, Italians. Russians,
Algerians. Japanese and Hindoos, we
might haife made H. friend among the
nations, It would seem that the very
meanness of giving support to such a
combination would hae been resented
by American manhood.
"Instead, it may as well be recognized
that we have so managed as to retain the
old rivalries of Great Britain, and to
make another enemy of Germany. Pro
fessing to fear tho German spirit, we
have done all that it has been possible
to do to bring her wrath upon our heads.
We have been boisterous Hi our Condem
nation of Germany. Wo have hidden out
of sight and condoned the Jar more
Brievous offenses of Great Britain. In all
Sur history. Germany never has crossed
our path. Wo Beyer have made a step
forward that the British have not en
deavored to thwart."

OPPOSE 'TWILIGHT SLEEP'
Stirring Statements Made,
at Osteopathists' Convention
"Billy" Killefer, famous bnseball
player, may bo ruined as a player
as a result of the work done on his
shoulder by "Bonesctter" Reese, of
Younjjstown, O. Dr. Charles H.
Spencer, Los Angeles, Cal.
Mental defectives of Philadelphia
are being helped by osteopathy and
boys, who havo been in the courts,
aro becoming better ns a result of
treatments. Dr. Ira W. Drew,
Osteopaths should use serums
just as they should use an antidote
for a poison. Toxine should bo
used. Dr. Arthur M. Flack, Phila
delphia. Osteopaths are too self-satisfied
in their own diagnosis and in lim
iting such to ailments of tho spine.
Dr. L. II. English, Washington,
"Bonesetter" Reese, of Youngstown, O,,
today was blamed for ruining the career
of some of America's best-known base
ball players at tho convention of the
Pennsylvania State Osteopathic Conven
tion In the Hotel Adelphla.
It was Dr. Charles H. Spencer, of a Los
Angeles (Cal.) Collcgo, who denounced the
treatment which "Bonesetter" Ree;ia ad
ministers to baseball players who become
afflicted with stiff shoulders.
The -wonders which can be accom
plished with professional baseball players
with sore and stiff shoulders by oste
opathic treatment were told and demon
strated at the meeting by Doctor Spencer.
In this connection he described an opera
tion by "Bonesetter" Reese on a famous
ball plaer, who had gone to Doctor
Spencer for treatment after "Bonesetter"
was through with him.
"Many baseball men are being ruined
by this man," he said, with emphasis.
When asked by a reporter for the name
of the famous player to whom he referred
Doctor Spencer said ho was "Billy" Kil
lefer, and Dr. Edward Q. Drew, this
city, who heard the statement, agreed
with him, saying that he, too, had been
treating Killefer, and that "Bonesetter"
had put him In pretty bad shape.
Doctor Spencer declared that more
baseball stars were 'not' shining on ac
count of shoulder and knee trouble than
anything else, and declared osteopathy is
doing wonders for many,
HELPS MENTALLY DEFICIENT.
"Osteopathy, as applied to bad boys la
doing muoh, said Dr. Ira W. Drew.
Philadelphia when talking on the sub
ject of "Mental Deficiency." "We are
taking boys whq .have been brought up
before the courts, to-called bad boys, but
who are really mentally deficient.
"Thoy are not sent to us by the court,
but by a social organization, the name of
which I do not want to mention at this
time. With osteopathy we are correcting
their abnormalities, and thus bettering
their mental conditions and helping them
overcome their handicaps. We want to
show to the world that soma of tho evils
which were iot amendable t surgery are,
amendable to osteopathy"
