Special to The Herald and News:
(Nashville, Tenn., July 15.?Dr. G. B. |
Winton made an address on Mexico
last Wednesday. His subject was
"Armed Intervention in Mexico." Having
lived for twelve years in Mexico,
j Dr. Winton is thoroughly familiar
with the social, political and economic
conditions in that country. He therefore
is bitterly opposed to intervention.
His reasons are: "It is unjustifiable;
it would be detrimental to Mexi

the United States, and it would arouse
the hostility of the other Spanish!
