a Man Of
MEXICO, I. P., March 12. Jose
Yves Iimantour has been called
the "WItte of Mexico." Grant
fins: the appelation Its complimentary
value, the Mexican minister of finance
needs to borrow neither the name nor
the fame "of the great Russian financier.
The term is applicable to Limantour
only as a means of impressing those
who possibly may be "unaware of the
gigantic and striking work done by
him in rehabilitating the finances of
the nartion and elevating its credit
above that of the rest of the Latin
A tall, slender man, with pure white
hair, mustache and sidewhlskersv Li
mantour is now in his 57th year. By
birth he is a Mexican, although French
blood predominates in his veins. There
Is a faction in Mexico which h aggres
sively antagonistic to Limantour, prin
cipally on account of his French blood.
By men who can think and :ake into
account the material needs of the
country, the mention of Limantour's
name is often coupled with the ex
pressed wish that he might become
president. But that is hardly to be an
ticipated. He has enemies, as has been
said. Personally, the suggestion has
always been extremely repugnant to
him. It Is & moot question, too, if un
der the constitution, which provides
that the president must be Mexican
born, Limantour is eligible to the office.
LlmantoKr a Genius.
Btrt, aside from all this, it is not de
tracting from the eminence or the qual
ifications of the 'minister of finance to
aey that his services may be estimated
to be of much more worth to Mexico In
his present position than if he were in
the executive chair. For finance Li
mantour h&s Innate Inclinations which
attain to the filginty of genius. For
politics he hag neither predilection nor
finesse. Next to Diaz, he is the most
potent man in Mexico today, upon the
principle that in any organization,
political or commercial, the real power
behind the throne Is the man who
handles the money. Limantour keeps
the purse-strings of Mexico tightly
-within his clasp. He is an autocrat in
bis department. He has to be.
Sternal vigilance is the price of
treasury surpluses. The head of every
ther department in the government is
fmbject to him, so fat- as money goes.

THE MEN AND WOMEN
Who Enjoy the Choicest Products of
the World's Commerce.
Knowledge of What is Best Mere Important
Than Wealth Without IL
It must be apparent to every one that
qualities of the highest order are necessary
to enable the best of the products of modern
commerce to attain to universal acceptance.
However loudly heralded, they may not
hope for world-wide pre-eminence unless
they meet with the general approval, notof
individuals only, but of the many who have
the happy faculty of selecting and enjoying
the choicest products. Their commenda
tion, consequently, becomes important to
others, since to meet the requirements of
the well informed of all countries the method
of manufacture must be of the most perfect
order and the combination the most excel
lent of its kind. After thirty years of gen
eral usage, Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is every
where accepted as th best of family laxatives. Its
quality is due not only to the excellence of the
laxative and carminative principles of plants
known to act most beneficially on the system,
but also to the method of manufacture of the
California Fig Syrup Go., which ensures that uniform
ity and purity essential in a remedy intended for
family use. It cleanses and sweetens the system
effectually, when a laxative is needed, without any
unpleasant after effects. To get the beneficial
effects of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, buy
the genuine only; the full name of the Gompany
California Fig Syrup Go. Is printed on the front of
every package. Price, 50 cents per bottle.

bring to bear. There is a budget com
mittee of the Mexican congress. But
tho budget committee Is Limantour. His
word is the committee's law.
Limantonr Cant ioHM.
In the ordinary running of the gov
ernment the principal rule which oper
ates is simple and invariable. Each de
partment Is allowed only as much
money as Limantour is sure can be ob
tained from the revenues. In other
words, the expenses are forced to fit
the nation's income. There are no
deficits, excepting upon extraordinary
occasions. Limantour will not allow
them. Therefore Mexico presents the
rare spectacle of a nation the receipts
of which, year after year, are much
more than the expenditures. There is
no borrowing to meet deficiences.
Tho Mexican government today Is one
of the few nations on earth which is in
tho position of a commercial house es
tablished and run strictly upon busi
ness principles. Mexico is in business,
in a manner of speaking, to make
money, and not to lose it.
To an investor of today who planks
down his money for Mexican bonds at
par, or better, a humorous appeal will
be made when he Is told of times when
$200,000 cash was realized on a Mexican
loan of 51,200,000. In one extremity the
old-time financiers of the nation ran
through the printing pressian Immense
number of papal bulls, which had been
sent to Mexico from Rome to be dis
pensed as indulgences to the faithful
upon payment of a price. By printing
on the blank backs of the bulls prom
ises to poy4 the government converted
them Into treasury notes and put them
Mexico's Deficit Sliminated.
The deficit was eliminated from Mex
ico's flhancialjscheme" of life as far
back as the budget of 1895-6, only a
year or two after Limantour became
minister of finance. Before then finance
ministers had groaned and wailed over
the deficit, deploring it soulfully, but
admitting their inability to prevent the
nation from, to quote one minister,
"marching blindfolded to the inevitable
abyss of irremediable bankruptcy."
In the past 14 years excesses of ordin
ary revnues over ordinary expenditures
has ranged from ?SOO,000 to $29,000,000
yearly. Last year's surplus was nearly
$5,900,000. In the period mentioned the
aggregate surpluses have amounted to
more than $136,000,000, of which 361,
000,000 ha3 been devoted to public
works and the remaining $75,000,000
cdnverted into a cash reserve.

income is one of Limantour's strong
points. He can sit down and figure out
'-what the country' revenue will be for
a year ahead with an accuracy that is
almost uncanny. Hebrings. the appro
priations well within the lowest pos
sible sum to which the revenues may
shrink, through causes foreseen or un
foreseen. Always the deficit is held at
bay, even though the man who sits on
the lid of the treasury happens to be
caught with an abnormally diminishing
revenue, receding below the sum of the
estimated disbursements. Here is an
example. Last year Mexico began to
feel sorel5r the widespread depression in
business, which began in 1907. Her in
come dropped off until it was nearly
$13,000,000 less than it had been in the
previous fiscal year.
T-he estimates of revenue were 103,
400,000, but the actual collections were
only $9S,775,000, or about $4,600,000 less
"Was there a deficit? There was not.
The surplus bobbed up serenely, as per
custom. When Limantour saw the
storm coming, he fell back upon that
comfortable nestegg of surpusses ac
cumulated in the fat years that had
gone before. By transferring certain
disbursements from the budget to the
reserve, as was allowable under the
law he brought the year to a close with
a surplus of ?5,S0$,000, which was the
difference between the disbursements of
$93,000,000 and the total revenues -of
Diaz on Xat Ion's Debt.
Of the dark days of Mexico's financial
chaos, president Diaz not long ago gave
a vivid description, when ha said:
"When in December, 1884, I again, by
the will of the people, took charge of
the supreme magistracy of the republic,
my administration found itself
confronted with a debt to the banks of
$11,000,000, with considerable liabilities
to the railroad companies for subven
tions and with notes -to private persons,
all secured by collateral, for $4,500,000.
The pay of tho civil employes of the
government was at that time three
months in arrears, and tlie public
revenue was tied up, the receipts of the
federal district being in their entirety
pledged to the National Bank.
While as to the proceeds of the various
custom houses not more than 12.63 per
cent of the total was available, even In
those customs houses the receipts of
which were less encumbered."
Diaz speedily contpeled the taking of
steps to handle tho country's foreign
debt In a manner ntore satisfactory to
Mexico's creditors. Between 1ES4 and
18S0 she managed to borrow enough
money to provide for her obligations,
and to take over the control of the Te
huantepec railroad. The federalization
of this line, by the way, is conceded
to be one of the best Investments the
country ever made. In another article
something of the history and the im
portance of the Tehuantepec line, and
of Its future, will be told.
The Sliver Crisis.
Banking syndicates took their final
toll of Mexico's necessities In 1S93, when
the silver crisis depreciated the value
of her mining products appallingly.
She was forced to borrow $15,000,000 to
make. ends meet. The underwriters got
the Issue of 6 percent bonds at 68 3-4.
Since then she has been able largely to
dictate .her own terms in borrowing
operations. The confidence of finan
ciers in her credit and the respect with
which she Is treated when she goes
into the money market can proceed,
manifestly, only from one cause insis-
tence of the administration that internal
peace must be preserved, and the cori
fldence of the. world that Diaz could

Mexico has increased her expenditures

and reduced those for war. The figures

Mexico Xot Extravagant.
Mexico has exhibited noteworthy
sanity Is refusing to plunge into the
tempting extravagances of huge army
and navy establishments. She does not
need them, and so her budgets-have not
been laden down with Immense appro
priations for their increase and up
keep. She Is not keen on Dreadnaughts
and is quite satisfied to let other na
tions rule the wave. She spent last
year on her armj which has utility
principally as a national police force, ;
only $13,970,000, while her navy
j i-ujl ;
her less than $1,000,000. As
of fact, the army is disproportionately
small for her size and the number of
the inhabitants. But labor is scarce in
Mexico. Every man taken into the
army, Diaz says, filches' a needed pair
of hands from the field or the shop.
So he has kept down the size of the
army and put forth exertions to In
crease the training and efficiency of the
officers, and co-jointly, those of the
rank and file.
Millions for Improvements.
The millions . that might have been
wasted In a vain glorious essay to pon
der 4o a zest for military glory, or in
seeking'to make Mexico a power on the
sea, have been devoted to internal im
provements. Examples of these are the
fine port works at the Atlantic and
Pacific ends of the Tehuantepec rail
way, at Veracruz and other harbors;

highways, subsidizing lrrlgafion pro-

adequate water supply, erecting" Schools

Then there Was the abolition o the
"alcabalas" to which task IImantour
set himself early in his career. Persons
who traveled in Mexico, and proceeded
from one state into another, as recently
as 15 years ago will tell earnestly and
profanely of (their experiences with the
customs collectors who stcod at every
state line to collect toll on baggage and
merchandise. The system amounted to
an Inter-state tariff. Because of the
"alcabalas," which was a relic of the
Spanish occupancy, consumption of ar
ticles of domestic manufacture were
largely restricted to the states in which
they were produced.
It was cheaper in 'some states to im
port goods from abroad, paying freight ,
and customs, ithan to purchase similar
articles of domestic manufacture. L.1- i

native production in manufactured ar
ticles was immediate and tremendous.
The adoption of the "gold exchange
standard" and the nationalization of the
bulk of railroad mileage of tho coun
try, are more recent examples of the
daring. progressive and profitable
strokes of Mexican national finance
which go to Limantour's credit. Mexico
brought her currency In line with that
of the other commercial nations of the
world under the promptings of similar
considerations as those which operated
in abolishing (the "alcabalas." While the

If it were the Mexican is" apt to be
chary about risking it in enterprises of
a speculative nature. He Is losing some
of his backwardness, and today Mexican
capital is being utilized more and more
freely. Diaz ami Liimantour have been
severely criticized by some who plead
uTtra-patrlotic motives for their friend
liness to foreign capitalists. But results
seem to prove that their attitude in this
respect was based up'on solid, far-seeing
utilitarian grounds. No one can assert
with truth that Mexico has lost any
thing by affording facilities for Amerl
caiW and other investors to earn big
returns on their investments. On the
contrary, she has gained in every way.

Charles .Smith Cites History
of Bios Padre and Other
Old Producers of the Ee
public. Charles Smith, a prominent mining
man, ajter an absence of several years,
has returned to this city on business.
He is in charge of the properties called
Dios Padre or Trinidad mines, near
Trinidad, in the Sahuaripa district, Son
ora, Mex., which belong to the Greene
Gold and Silver Mining company. The
camp is 50 miles east of La Dura,
through which the new Cananea rail
road passes on the way to Tonichi, and
to reach ultimately Nacozarl.
Discovered by Spaniards.
"The Dios Padre mine has been
worked," says Mr. Smith, "off and on
for over 100 yearsy and has produced
"This rich mine was discovered by the
Spaniards, who had previously found
and were working the Santa Rita mine;
and while packing bullion over the
trail through the Sierras to Chihuahua,
they found some rich outcrops on the
trail and began .exploration work on the
presenDIos Padro mine.
"Building vaso smelters, 'they were so
successful that they took out a large
amount of rich ore. Subsequently, after
a long period of idleness, due to the
raids of Indians, the mine was taken up
in the seventies by Alzuah. In four
years of that time Francisco Carleton,
an American, now living in Santa Rosa,
operated it so successfully that it !
cleared over $400,000 profits.
English Company Gets Control.
"Upon the death of Alzuah, Ramon
Corral, now vice president of Mexico,
acting as administrator of the estate,
took charge of and bonded the mine to
an English company. The latter made
a bad Job of mining, spending a great
amount of money -in machinery and
surface improvemnts, building a 400
ton mill, cable trains, expensive roads
In short they were riotously extrava
gant, as evidenced by machinery scat
tered all over that locality. Mean
while they did no development nor ex
ploration work on the mine. In fact,
the main shaft is down 215 feet deep,
about 100 feet below the level of the
arroya. There had not been any work
done In the mines for 30 years and It
was the sakie,' as when I was first
ther In 1382.
"After that company gave up, Corral
went to work and 'chlorlded' it for the
Alzuah heirs and in four or five vears
took out 125,000. Then Manuel Jesus
Olea and Augustino Ainsa leased it
from Corral, paying $500 rental a month
and made money. They, however, only
gutted the old ore stopes and pillars,
doing no development work. After this
Richard Bros, took a hand and lease
and turned it over to the Greene Gold
and Silver company.
Spenks of Incompetence.
"W,hoever has had possession of the
mine and made a failure, has done so
through Incompetence. Whenever the
Dios Padre has not paid it has been due
to bad management. As far as devel
oped, it showed it is a big mine. I
speak of these failures to Illustrate a
not unusual thing In that country. The
state of Sonpra, like many other mining
countries, id strewn with old plants and
ruined machinery, monuments of the in
competence of the managers and folly
of the Investors, who spent hundreds of
thousands In those things instead of
exploiting and developing the proper
ties first to find out whether the prop
erties were worth anything. There are
plenty of the same kind of operations
going on now.
Cause of Failure.
"Idont see why this property if prop
erly managed can not be made a good
paying proposition. It does not make
much water, but the water is aciduous
and mineralized. But there is no serious
difficulty to contend with.
"I will reiterate that the cause of
most failures in mining in Mexico Is
that many American and other foreign
companies in the first place put in in
"It war. an old saying in Nevada that
'A mining engineer is a man with a
khaki suit, and a dinky pick.' This re
ferred to the fresh college graduates
without practical experience, who would
expend very little In development, and
who would, when (they saw a rich
streak or stringer, get excited and put
in expensive machinery.
"In the same district are La Bufa
and the Cienlga mines, famous old
producers, but now Idle. Quite a num
ber of people are down In that section
nrospectlng and working old mines and
more are coming all the time, now that
the Lew railway Is within 50 miles and
former difficulties of transportation a
thing of the past.

anywhere in the United States.
"La Republica mine, although1 across
I the imaginery line of Chluahua, is only
40 miles southeast of Trinidad, and
geologically and mlneraloglcally should
belong to the Sahuaripa district. This
Is an A No. 1 property and Its present
manager, Webster, I believe is a very
competent man. He has had great diffi
culties to contend with, for in the last
rainy season the prior management al
lowed the mine to get flooded, which,
from all accounts, could have been
avoided, had they not stoped out the
ore to the surfaced making an opening
for the rain waters to rush in.
"The ores near the surface and the
pillars should have been left for futura
reserves. They were as good there as
money in "the bank, and could have
been taken out any time.

the mine will become a good producer."
