The Wily llivnlutliinlit Skips Around
with Such 'Impunity There lit no Know
ing In Willi! St-itlon Up Will Turn Ut
On the Rio, via Lari:do, Tox., Jan.
9. The luck of specific news from
Qarza creates the impression of ;i calm
before the storm. The wily revolution
ist has skipped about with such im
punity that there is no knowing whora
he will turn up next.
It seems to lie generally believed that
he is backed by the clerical party in
Mexico, who are aiming at a partial
restoration of church supremacy. This,
with the disaffected elements from one
class and another who are always ready
to grasp a change with the ideas that it
cannot Ixs for the worst, gives him a
support of no mean proportions.
The fact that ho has been able to livo
and support his band without raids or
robbery shows that ho is either receiv
ing funds from some source beyond his
own revenue; or is supported by sympa
thizers on both hides of the river.
Private letters from Monclova indi
cate that the towns surrounding are con
siderably worked up over thq movements
of the daring revolutionists. The failure
of the Mexican government to effect his
capture or drivo him from the country
has given rise to the belief that he is
stronger with the ieoplo than was for
merly credited. The fact that Garza
has respected private projierty has in
vested his undertaking with a respecta
bility and dignity which a policy of pill
age and robbery would havo destroyed.
Either President Diaz has had the tal
ents and inilneneo of Garza underrated
him, or has greater confidence in the
stability of the government than is en
joyed by many of tho inhabitants of the
northern frontier, or he would take
more vigorous steps to suppress tho in
That there is much dissatisfaction
among the people against the heads of
soveral of the state governments, notably
that of Coahuila, if common reports be
true, there is no doubt, and tho central
government is held responsible for this
state of affairs and the people are anx
ious to have reform carried on in their
The feeling is not against President
Diaz personally as it is against tho state
officials who, in many instances it is
claimed, are tyrannical ami oppres3i v
toward the people. JS&aiK88BW
Tho laboring classes are burdened with
so many taxes that as they become edu
cated they are beginning to reason and
think for themselves and to struggle to
get out from under the load.
Tho governing clashes have not ap
peared to realize tho change which the
enlightening influences of tho railways
have effected in the last ten years and
tho change which tho wmtiment of the
Ieople have undergone in consequence.
The demand for a moro equitable distri
bution of tho burden of government is
beginning to be heard, and the voice of
any ieoplo j-.ibt beginning to taste tho
sweeta of liberty is dangerous to
President Diaz' name will go down in
history as one of the most progressive
and enlightened of Mexican statesmen,
but having by his wonderful talents
opened tho eyes of hispeoplo to the bless
ings which progress and enlightenment
brings, and having given to them the
fruit of tho tree of knowledge and and
taught them tho value of liboiiy and
good government, it would bo a danger
ous experiment to deny them their ad
vantages. If, as charged, tho Mexican people are
incapable of t-elf-govcrmnoct, tho lesson
in republican ideas of liberty which has
been taught them for tho last few years
will prove dangerous to vbo ieaco of the
country. Iteforms will bo attempted,
aud it will be a blessing to tho peoplo if
those in power are wibo enough to seo
the drift of public sentiment and grant
peaceably that which otherwise must
come ultimately by forco.
Garza individually is comparatively
unknown and personally has but fow
adherents, but tho principles of equal
taxation, just laws, a freo press and a
free ballot and a government less cen
tralized in its form ate becoming dan
gerously popular, and Ins advocacy of
theso reforms has rnnuM for him a cer
tain amount of reipeot, which may in
crease at au alarming rate if left un
checked and unheeded.
