Editor of The Tribune:
?\t there Is ;tny leseon for the world

te tliat the people of Mexico are with
the adrninistration ond will not submit
to leelng it overthroXn. Ba.k of this
predonvi int fact 1? the consideration
that u majority of the Mexican people
ttt \'. favor of law and order. prog

Inatitutions. the preservation of the in
teprit.- "f the republic and the dis
couragintc of condit1(.ns which mlght
offer an>" otlur naticn an excupe to
interfer- in Mexican aftalrs. With
the exception of General Orozoo in the
north. who is so clearly beaten that
he can no longer be considered in the
light of a troublesom? lactor, there
r.re now only two rebel leaders in op
poBition to the government?Zapata in

forces and influence of both are now
so negligible that it will require only
a brief tlme to include them wlth
The President Vindicated.
"Mtxico has just flnlshed its seeond
free electlon, one of rights. which was
guaranteed to citizens by the propu

political elementn an opportunity to
test their strength, and the rcsult was
an overwhelming victory for the gov?
