Gen. Bernardo Reyes, exiled military
leader of Mexico, was hailed as the only
man capable of succeeding Porfcrio Diaz
as President of the Southern republic
and restoring- peace in that country, by
Robert S Barrett, forroir editor of the
Mexico City Record, in an address at
the Columbia. Theater latt night.
Mr. Barrett, -who has l'ved la Mexico
for a number of years, gave the inside
history of the resolution now in prog

were doomed to defeat Madero. leader
oi the insurgents, according to the lec
turer, is not strong enough to direct a
successful fight against the administra
tion, and his guerrilla bands are too
weak to wage a successful campaign
against the federal forces.
In citing the causes that have led up
to the present upheaval in the republic,
Mr Barrett caused a mild scnsation b
ctelaring that graft predominated in
everj province of Mexico, jnd that the
cabinet and state officers reaped a har
vest at the expense of the ignorant popu
lation Diaz Most Honorable.
Mr Barrett lost no time, however, in
asserting that President Diaz is one of
the most honorable men in the world"
StereopUcon slides e-e used to illus
trate the lecture, and virvvs of the men
who are fighting against the administra

George Washington Universitv, said in

ing the attention of the world to our
neighboring republic. If Diaz is the
preat patriot that he has been painted,
if Mexico is a land of peace, and if the
people of that nation live under a free

large haciendas, which are net now
wholly under cultivation, to be divided
up anions the poor at actual cost and
on easy pavments This plan, which
has been under consideration by the
Mexican government for some time, was
first given wide publicity in a state
ment made by Eenor Limantour while in
Paris recently. It has been favorablv
received bj the people of Mexico, and
undoubted! would have been inaugu
rated several months ago but for the
s-editlonary disorders in some sections of
the country which made it necessary
for the government to draw upon the
funds that had been accumulated in the
treasury with this pc!ic in view.
"Very little difficulty is expected in
this matter ' the Ambassador continued.
"Many of the large landowners are
foreigners, and many tracts of land have
not been improved for cultivation Such
unimproved land, of course, will be
sought, and the farmer who buys the
land will improve it himself. The more
extensive improvements, such as ir
rigating, Lc. will be carried on at the
expense of the government. This will
enable the poor man to obtain a small
tract of land at the lowest possible
Insurgents Not Satisfied.
The appointment of Senor de la Barra
as premier of the new Mexican cabinet
has been received with satisfaction by
oflicers of the State Department. The
representatives of the Insurgent party
here, however, are not satisfied with the
appointment Dr. Vasquez Gomez, the
agent here of the revolutionists had this
comment to make upon the selection
' It docs not alter matters that Snor
de la Barra is to be premier President

Admit Situntlon Is Grave.
Officials of the btate Department and the
Mexican Embassy practically admit that
a grave situation exists in Mexico, which
must be met by prompt reforms This
is the main reason whv President Diaz
has decided to a-ppomt vounger and rro-e
popular men to public life and to promise
a liberal, programme of administrative

The United States has for several
montns been aware of th seriousness
of the political condit'ons in Mexico
From reports received from consular and
diplomatic ofiicc-s within tho last few
months it was made plain that in addi
tion to the active revolt in the state of
Chihuahua and other sections of the
countrj there existed a feeling of un
rest among people who although thev
did not care to risk their lives in open
revolt against the Diaz administration
felt that some steps should be taken to
ameliorate their condition of life

Ambassador to Mexico, visited V5 ashing

them that the situation in Mexico was
dangerous, and that at an time there
was danger of a general uprising, which
might wipe out the Diaz administration

Thpse reforms are intended to allay the

SECRETARY NORTON IS A
CLEVER GOLFER AT LAST
Dr. Albert Shaw Rattled by talk on Postal Increase
while Playing Match on Augusta Links.
Dr Albert Shaw, editor of the Review
of Revlws, is a good solf player, but
there are a few things about the game
that he might learn bv pUving once or
twice more with Charles D. Norton, sec

Secretary Norton isn't much on form.

Dr. Shaw will vouch for that, so also

Shaw and Norton sauntered out on the

the match with the seriousness born of
a very serious Ufe, and soon had Nor

limited to his year's association with
President Taft, very much in the lurch
The doctor's stroke was almost perfect,
his drives were straight, low, and Power

notch form, when the two players reached
the ninth hole.
"Well. Mr. Secretary. I have you seven
down" said the doctor, condescendingly.
Norton admitted It. with a mournful
"yes" but he was scratching his head
and apparently day dreaming. Of course,
the learned doctor had no suspicion of
a plot, when Secretary Norton looked up
suddenly and remarked:
"Doctor, it has been a mystery to me
to understand how the editors and pro
prietors of first-class magazines could
have taken the stand they did nst
President Taft's recommendations to in
crease the rates on second-class mail

Norton sighed and remaiked:
