Diaz Said to Have Aban

HE GIVES WAY TO
Mexico City, June 30. That Ramon
Corral will never be reelected vice
president of Mexico is the opinion that
prevails among persons here in close
touch with politics of Mexico.
The election on last Sunday was onl
! for electors, who will elect the vice
nresident. These electors are unin-
structed, but are men who are consid- )
ered as absolutely loyal to preaiucut
Diaz and who will do his bidding.
These electors, different from the elec
toral college In Mexico, number about
75,000 and will meet in their Various
states on July 10 to cast their ballot
for president, vice president and mem
bers of the supreme court. These bal
lots will be sent to Mexico City and
kept sealed until the meeting of the
national congress in September, when
they will be opened and canvassed.
There are a number of incidents
which tro to show that president Diaz
ha; decided that it
will be best to j
v.or.nr. iil idea of making Corral
vice nresident and
nresident. for uiaz nor nunc ui no ,
friends expect him to live the six year
pnrroi Hoc rrftn vice nresident for
several years and instead of becom
ing popular has become more unpopu
lar, not among one class, but among
all classes. As a result the close
friends and advisors of Diaz have
frankly told him that the selection of
Corral as his successor means" revolu
tion and disorder when he dies.
To avoid this, it looks now as if the
tip would be quietly passed around that
the electors at their meeting in July
shall cast their votes for some other
than Corral. In this connection three
men are mentioned, Felix Diaz, neph
ew nf the nresident. and chief of police
of Mexico City; Gov. Dehesa, of Vera i
Cruz; and Gen. Reyes, former governor
of Nuevo Leon
the best informed, the j
president's choice Is Gov. Dehesa, and
that the vote of the electors in July j
-will be cast accordingly.
c fmnossible to conceive
of certain :
have transpired since
Dlnr- Accepts Dehesa.
For instance. Gov. Dehesa, v.-ho Is an
appointee of president Diaz and a close
personal friend, is making a tour of
Tvfin in the Interest of his candi
dacy for the vice presidency and -will
visit all of the larger cities, address-
nr thnsP who have been elected as ,
ing those wno na.e ui -.-- -
electors. In tne meantime u"" n,u
romain inactive in Mexico.
i No one who unuerstanas .ueiidn pol
itics for a moment, believes that Gov.
Dehesa would adopt such a policy un
less he had the tacit consent of presi
dent Diaz to do so. If it were other
wise the same method would be applied
to him that was applied to Reyes and
to Madero. .
The fact is that since election De
hesa has come to Mexico City and es
tablished headquarter?. To do this
and to visit the various cities of the
republic in the interest of his candi- (
dacy it was necessary for him to secure j
the permission of president Diaz to be
absent from his post oi duty as gov
ernor of Vera Cruz.
If president Diaz was not In sym
pathy with him this permission could
not possibly have been secured, at least
not until after July 10, when the votes
of the electors will have been cast.
In view of all of these circumstances
the canvassing of the vote for vice j
president by congress, which meets
i SeDtember 15. will be watched with
great interest and the vote may spoil
the political ambitions of Corral, un
til now the protege of president Diaz.

Offi'cial ln Veracruz.
San Antonio,' Tex., June 30. Now
that it looks very much like Teodoro
A. Dehesa, governor of Veracruz, would
be the next vice president of Mexico, he
has become a man of great Interest to
the citizens of the United States. A
Mexico City dispatch says he has been
positively decided on by Diaz as a com
promise candidate and that Corral will
be shelved. f
He has been in public office for many
years, is a wealthy man and has been
successful in all his undertakings. He
can properlj be called a self made man,
in the sense that Avhile coming of aris
tocratic stock, yet he has reached a
higher position than any of his ances
tors and has grownjfar more wealthy.
He first made his mark as collector
of the port of Veracruz. While in that
position he demonstrated such remark
able executive ability and capacity for
organisation that he attracted the at
tention of president Diaz and was ad
vanced to be governor of Veracruz.
That was 18 years ago and since that
time he has served his state faithfully
and successfully. There is no more
progressive state in Mexico nor one
more highly developed in every respect
than Veracruz and it is all due to re
forms initiated by governor Dehesa. Xo-t
least among his great works was rid
ding that rtate of yellow fever as a
result of an extensive campaign of
In private life he is a great family
man and with a great fondness for art.
He is considered one of the greatest
connoisseurs in the entire republic. His
collections of paintings is unsurpassed
in Mexico, where there are many
A governmental hobby of Dehesa's
has been education and he has encour
aged it until Veracruz has as fine a
system of public free schools as any
to be found on the American continent.
Dehesa is a genfus for militant poli
tics and handles men as few leaders
j can. Whether or not he is elected vice
j president his present campaign will
make him one of the leaders in Mexico
and a possible successor to Diaz sis
years from now.

Previous to this period he spoke
frequently and held high reputation
as an orator. In those earlier days his
speeches were the signal for the gath-

as an orator he was ranked with
