After passing most ot a week in 'ld

from border people upon the Mexican
situation, senator A B Fall arrived in
El Paso Sunday eenlng At tho Ho
tel Paso del Norte on Slonday morn

a group of conversing friends and to
each he reiterated hie position on the
Mexican question and his irritability
at the Wilson administration.
Clenn U Mexico.
"We can clean up Mexico and make,
It a. model country in three monthV
time." he said "That is all that is nec
essary Just clean it up"
'Do you mean that our troops would
go in and settle the whole problem in
three months" he was asked.
'I most certainly do," he said. "If
we have enough of them to do It with."
"Would you establish a protecter
ate,r That is a big question it depends
upon what construction the word pro
tectorate is used I personally don't
wish to discuss that matter.
"Carranza has proven himself to be
eminently unfit. In fact, the decree
which he has issued, setting aside the
constitution of the republic and of the
states, and placing himself as dictator,
is tho most arbitrary thing I have ever
seen And yet Wilson approves this
"Is unfit quite the word?" the senates
was asked "Will you not concede that
Carranza -has shown leadership In be
ing able to make himself a dictator"
"I don't want fo concede or discuss
anything about Carranza," replied the
senator. "His decree is an audacious
and presumptuous act. In that decree
he has given to himself the power to
name the governors. Judges, civil and
military officials of the republio and
of the states, and placing himself as
dictator, is the most arbitrary thing I
have ever seen. When he will have
restored ordqr, he Is expected to call
his self-made congress together and
approve his decrees, and then call for
an election which will be made to
Senator Fall also took to task Car
ranza's socialistic idea about distribu
tion of land among the peons of Mex
ico and the violation of property rights.
He said that the chief opposition to In
tervention along the border Is that of
border copper mines who are making
20 cents a pound on their metal. The
senator also wants an airplane patrol
for the border, passing into the Interior
of Mexico to keep Informed as to what
the Mexicans might be doing and thus
guard against any adverse move that
might be made.
That the care of the sick soldiers
has been satisfactory and the action
of mayor Tom Lea in asking Washing
ton for better border protection, wera
two additional points that the senator
commennded. He censured the Inade
quate patroling of the border at Co
lumbus and Nogales, and a nine mile
gap from Columbus to Qlbson ranch
"I aw Inclined to believe that the
patrol which was formerly active alontf
the border was reduced as a result of
