VARYING YIEWS
ABOUT MEXICO
Holland Cites Reports Not
All Favorable to Car
ranza's Rule.
Various published report* of Inter
views With 00mo of the Mexican ed
itors who ere now rial tint Hi the
I nited States do not agree fully with
statements privately made by some of
thoeo Who have recently come from
Mexico to Hew York. There 1j no
disagreemtnt respecting the detire of
the plain people of Mexico to be as
sured of lb stable government, of free
dom from revolutions, end of oppor
tunity to pure vie their vocation with
out unjust interference.
But there does seem to be tome dif
ference of opinion respecting the re
lation of the Carransa government to
Ihe entire Mexican situation. 8om? of
?he published reports hsve spoken oC
I'arransa and hia administration in
vorda of commendation and hope. On
The other hand eome who are qua'.fled
to speak of Carransa and his govern
ment do not hesitate to criticise htm
and It and even so 10 far a* to aay
that no permanent Internal improve
ment can be estsblished until Car
ranxa and his sdminlstration and
methods sre eliminated. Vicwa of this
kind, however, are expressed privste
Jy. even confidentially, at lesst ao fsr
as the Identity of those who give these
Opinions is concerned.
Property Confiscated.
In order to substantlats their opin
ion of Carransa and hia methods va
rloua incidents thst have occurred
under hig administration have been
spoken of In detalL For Instance, a
Mexican citizen who la a man of in
tegrity and of Influence said to m
warm personal friend in New York
that fce could give one or tWo exam
plea which would best illustrate Car
ransa's methods. Hs said that short
. ly after Csrransa had established
himself In Mexico City hi9 adminis
tration <-aused the property of many
citizens to bo confiscated.
The reason alleged for this action
waa9 that the citisens were not loyally
supporting the Carransa administra
tion and were in secret league against
it. This Mexican said that 152 houses
in the heart of Mexico City had been
taken over by the Carransa adminis
tration. Everything in these houses
was confiscated. There remained not
tho slightest item of household fur
niture and Jewels, family heirlooms,
silverware and other valuables were
seised.
These articles were collected, a vast
mass in all. and were sent to tho
United States. A considerable part
of this property was landed at Hous
ton. Tex., and all of It was sold. Some
of it commanded high prices. 'The ag
gregate money received for the sale
of these commodities and for articles
taken from public buildings was, ac
cording to this man. approximately
>30,000.000. "What use waa made of this
money after it reached Mexico City Is
unknown. Very likely It was deposittd
in tho Mexican treasury.
Then again, the Carransa admin
istration haa faktn over, according
to this Informant, some of the best
restaurants and a moving picture
rheater which Is said to be on* of
the best in the worl<L
la the OH Region.
American and English capital to a
great extent operates under lease
the enormous oil fields upon the
eastern coast of Mexico. This prop
erty is protected by a friendly Mex
ican who has a considerable num
ber of troops under his control. For
this service the operating compan
ies pay a satisfactory sum to the
Mexican officer. It is not regarded
as blackmail. It is looked upon as a
just payment for adequate service.
Great Britain relies to a consid
erable extent for her oil supplies up
on these Mexican wells. If for any
cause the export of oil from Mex
ico should be ended Great Britain
would be seriously embarrassed. The
apprehensions are strong that the
Caransa administration is about to
make a serious attempt to over
throw the Mexican officer and the
little army which he controls, whose
services have so far been success
ful In protecting the oil region. In
fact It is reported privately that
skirmishes have already begun be
tween Carransa troopa and those
under the command of the officer
who Is protecting tho oil region.
Therefore it is surmised that the
rarranza administration hopes by
the force of numbers to gain pos
session of the oil territory. If that
were done, then the administration
would probably put an export tax
upon the oil so high as practically
to amount to an embargo upon the
ex port.
Reports of this kind that have been
ommunicated by responsible Mexican
itixens to their friends In New York
end to Increase the apprehension that
t may be Inevitable in order to pro
tect English and American capital
invested In the oil region, to send to
those regions English and American
forces.
In some of the published reports
the statement has been made that
there is no considerable German prop
aganda or Influence In Mexico. In
reply to this statement, however, it
Is privately said that the Carransa
administration has taken control of
11 the banks In Mexico City except
he one which ts controlled by Ger
man capital. That has been left alone,
here has been no Interference with
.a business. Justly or unjustly Car
ansa himself Is suspected of lesning
trongly In sympathy toward Oer
any, while the great body of tho
exlcan citisens are not pro-German
-many of them, at heart at least
being Tery friendly to France.
Undoubtedly President Wilson
hss lesrned that some of the pub-,
Ilshed statements are not In accord
with the privately expressed views
respecting the conditions In Mexico. I
But 1t Is admitted by all that the I
brief address that President Wilson
made to tho Mexican editors, which
will be widely circulated In Mexi
co, will have great Influence in
changing an opinion which haa pre
vailed. and. It is reported, hss been
cultivated by friends of Carransa,
that the United States hopes that
condition^ will be favorable by and
by for such Intervention as will
enable this country to secure the
control of the rich silver deposits,
of the on fields and of the cattle
ranches in northwestern Mexico.
President Wilson's assurance that
the United States entertslns no
desire of this kind, hoping only for
amity between our own citisens
and those of Mexico and loo kins
for the time when there wilf*>? re
stored peaceful Internal conditions
In Mexico, will. It is believed, be
of the utmost advantage so far as
enabling Mexican citizens to obtain
an accurate Idea of the real pur
poses snd disposition of the Untied
States Is concerned.

SUPPORT THE MARKET
Then Profit-Taking Shades Off the
Whole List.
Mr BROADAH WAIL.
Kew Tork. June II.?Strong support
came to the stocJr market today, and
the reaction begun yesterday wu
checked. After an advance of a point
and more above the closing prices of
yesterday, profit-taking shaded the
lift again. The close was steady, but
not much higher than the previous
one. There was som? good selling,
and professionals announced their be
lief that most of the buying was short
covering.
General motors rose 3 points be
cause the Insiders refused to let the
shorts have the stock they have so
earnestly desired ever since it crossed
par.
American Telephone acted well un
der the announcement of big flnanc
I lng.
tfteel stocks of every descrlptlotf
were strong this morning, and resist
ed the afternoon's selling about the
best of any.
Tobacco stocks under leadership of
I Sumatra were also a strong feature.
Railway equipment shares were led
by American locomotive, the market
for which is understood to have been
placed in new hands.
There is good accumulation In all
I the oils.
The most important new Influence
In the market Is the rapid shipment
of American troops to Europe. It is
considered that the end of the war Is
now In sight, and ean safely be dis
counted. The end is expected to coma
about October, 1319. It seems like a
rash statement to name any date for
this war, but that calculation Is made
by eminent military authorities.
The big fact In the market from the
Wall street point of the view Is the
fact that It has not yielded fender the
offensive In France, under the tax
talk or under the offensive In Italy.
