THE ELIMINATION OF CARRANZA
The resignation of General larranza as provi
sional president of Mexico. a> rep rted in unofficial
dispatches to Washington, and its prompt accept
ance by the Villa-controlled peace conference in
Agua-calieutt s. while it indicates perhaps the elimi
nation ot' one ot* the stumbling blocks to the estab
lishment of permanent peace in the turbulant re
public to the south of us. cannot be accepted as
giving absolute assurance that all is to be har
t 'arran.:;. - for- d retirement from a position of
prominence in the affairs of Mexico appears to be
entirely satisfactory to General Villa, his former
ally, wiih whom, however, he has recently been
literally at swords' points, and the fact that An
tonio Villarreal, who has the Villa backing, is prac
tically certain to become the provisional president,
l- another indication that the Villa party has made
important trains in .ts campaign to strengthen its
own position. The record of Villa, however, is not
such as to inspire confidence in his ability or even
in his desire to give Mexico what it has so long
needed.—a stable government established on the
actual will of the majority of the people.
If Americans have got the right impression of
\ ilia or the Villa party, its aims and ambitions are
no less seltish than those of other parties iu recent
incomplete control of the Mexican government.
The impression will last that the Villa party will
remain in the ascendency only as long as it is able
to maintain us position through the right of might,
—that is through the strength of its military or
ganization,—and government established on such
a basis has been the cause of all of Mexico's woes
of the pas^
There is nothing to guarantee even now that the
majority of Mexicans will be satisfied with the kind
of government Villa will try to force down their
throats. Indeed th»»re already are signs that the
selection of \ illarreal will be unsatisfactory to the
leaders now engaged in hostilities in Sonora or to
other leader* iu the North, so that the hrie of
eliminating strife, even with Carranza out of the
way, is not very bright.
Indeed the prospect of real and lasting peace in
Mexico seems almost as remote as it has been since
the days of Diaz, for the simple reason that ea.-h
successive party that temporarily gains control is
prompted by considerations of personal gain and
personal ambition rather than the actual welfare of
The real deliverer of Mexico does not seem gs yet
to have put in an appearance.
COMMON SENSE AND THE HUNTER
With the opening of the hunting season will come
the usual crop of hunting accidents, many of them
••aused by sheer carelessness of the hunters them
selves. Authorities who have followed hunting iu
field and forest say that accidents almost invariablv
are the result of carelessness, either on the part
of the hunter or of someone in his party. The
observance of ordinary precautions would have
prevented hundreds of accidents in the past, and
while thos" responsible for them may have ex
pressed great sorrow for their carelessness, never
theless that sorrow does not restore a victim to
life, nor does it remove the suffering and misery
of the maimed and injured.
Every year the warning goes out to hunters to
beware of the ' didn't kuow it was loaded" gun.
•for this weapon has been the cause of more serious
hunting accidents than all of the other causes com
bined. Hunters are told not to point a gun in the
HARRISBURO STAR-IN DEPENDENT, THURSDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 15, 1914.
j direction of another hunter, for iu these days of
| hair-triggers and other quick-firing devices the gun j
I is likely to he discharged when least expected.;
; Those who cross fences are admonished not to drag
| the gun after them as they climb, but time and;
j again we read of men being iujured by carelessness'
of this sort, the trigger catching on a twig or a rail
and another candidate qualifying for the hospital.
How often has the warning been sounded not to
tire unless the game is in sight* And yet, the eare
■ less or excited sportsman sees a movement in the
bush, or a swaying branch, and sends a load of shot
or a bullet into another hunter.
<>f recent years deer hunters have taken to wear
ing red caps, especially in Pennsylvania woods, as
| a mark to distinguish them from deer, but this
practice does not obtain when the careless bird
hunter is abroad. The slightest movement in the
i brush is the signal for him to bang away.
Some years ago the loss of life in the Penneylva- j
nia forests through mistaking the hunter for the;
deer was one of the considerations that led to the
enactment of a law making it a penal offense to
kill a deer without horns—a doe or a fawn—so that
deer hunters now seldom shoot unless they see the
animal 's horns. This has led to a remarkable dimi
nution in the number of deer hunters killed and
wounded iu this state. It also has led to a won
derful increase in the number of deer, as none but
| buck deer are permitted to be killed, while the
, fawns and does thrive and continue to increase.
! Hut. even with this precaution, the number of deer
: hunting accidents is large, although decreasing
j every season.
It is huuter who carries a shotgun, however, |
who is guilty of most of the carelessness that re
sults iu accidents, and repeated admonitions have
failed to impress upon this class that care should
always be observed. The hunter's license law pro
vides that no person under fourteen years old
shall be permitted to hunt in ibis state, ami this
wise provision has done much to reduce the number
of shotgun accidents. In former years any boy
sturdy enough to carry a gun and point it could
as a hunter roam the fields, although it stands to
reason that hoys under fourteen arc not possessed
of that precaution given to persons more matured.
With no experience a hoy under fourteen is likely
to bang away at anything and everything, little
uoting the danger of his actions.
Common sense is the best qualification of men
who go into the tieids and forests in quest of game,
and the observance of common sense rules will pre
vent many an accident during the season opening |

Lebanon's Fire Truck All New i
No fire department in the State is
quite so proud of its new automobile
apparatus as the Lebanon department,
i whos,» engines attracted much attention '
during the State firemen's parade here;
I :ast week. However, when some spec
tators said they thought the motor- ■
I drawn hook and ladder truck was an
I old one, pulled by a tractor of recent
manufacture, and asked ,the Lebanon |
firemen about it. the visitors feft in- '
suited. Many persons did ask about it '
when the parade was momentarily
stopped along the route. One Lebanon !
"I should say that is not an old

A few minutes later along came the

that the local one would be about twice

Chestnut Blight Vanishing?
The last Legislature shut off an ap
j propriation for checking the chestnut
blight in Pennsylvania, aud the Chest
nut Blight Commission, created to stay
I the ravages of the pest, went out of
business. The disease continues, except
in places where it had been checked
»while the Commission 'was at work.
Scientific doctoring had a good result in
I preventing the killing of the trees, and
vet, with all of t;>e disease iu Pennsyl
vania. the chestnut crop this year is j
reported to b»* larger than ever, espe- 1
| cially iu the vicinity of 'Harrisburg.
i Every day for the last couple of weeks
i chestnut parties have been starting out
; from Harrisburg for nuts, returning in j
j the evening laden with bags full of
! the finest specimens.
"The chestnut blight is still
| ing on," says a Forestry Commission
i official, "but it has declined in the!
Alleghenies. It still ravages the south
eastern, eastern and northeastern parts
of the State, and the southern parts as j
j far west as Adams eounty."
* * *
New Trees Spring Up
A singular thing in connection with
the chestnut blight is that trees affeet
ed by it, until they are totally sapped
i of their v itality and life, will bear ;
larger crops than trees that are not af-!
r'eetcd. and that is given as one reason i
why the chestnut crop is large in the
i vicinity of Harrisburg. The chestnut '
; blight we still have with us. but we'
also have the chestnuts. It is true that !
in time we may have neither trees nor j
nuts, but somehow as the trees die in I
one section new trees spring up, and
i there docsn't appear to be any appre- '
; hension that the chestnut at any (time
' will be a thing of the nast. And then,
i we ehall always have the minstrel and i
vaudeville jokes with a chestnut.
