lermitted old Diaz officials to retain jiosltions which required training and experience to fill. Then when the
time came for mustering out many ot his rebel soldiers who were no longer required there come open revolt
and defiance at various places. Such instances occurred at Cananea, Afeua Prieta and other places In So
nora. Zapata continued in opert revolt, never acknowledging either the authority of De la Rarra. as provision

this charge found favor with many throughout the country and the uprising which followed when Orozco de
serted thq standard of Madero was based on the bad faith of the new president in falling to carry out the
promises made for the distribution o; public lands to the homeless.
The Madero resignation we believe opens up possibilities of a restoration of the country again to Indus
trial prosperity and peace; It may roqulre months to dispel all the Irresponsible bands that have been rov
ing over the country and looting tlie defenseless under the guise or rebels, but if Fells Diaz, who by his
coupe of last Sunday and his stubhorn flght during an entire week forcej the resignation of Madero accepts
De la Barra as the provisional president during the pacification of the country and Madero likewise gives his
support td the new government therP would seem to be no reason why It should not be successful and that
at a presidential election which w presume will follow soon the man choisen will receive the combined sup
port or the country.
De la Barra is a man of brains .n regarded as one imbued with patriotism and desire for the welfare of
Mexico and the Mexican people. Di.lz belongs to the old fcOvernmental regime, but without the disposition
to assume all authority which charactcrjled nl9 illustrious uncle. Don Porfirlo. He knows the Mexican peo
ple; their disposition and desires ana wj,ji the prestige he has gained during the last few days he should bo
'able to exert much lnfluer.ee for th., Kood of h!s country ana bring la all those who have led the revolts
against Madero to the aid of the Provisional president and the man who shall be later chosen to permanent
ly hold the governmental reigns.
We do not lay claim lo being a ecvernmental dreamer, but we can 'imagine much better conditions In
Mexico as the result-of the happenings at Mexico Cit.-durin& the past week culminating In the resignation of
Madero, than those or the past two yoars. There .Is possibility or a genuine love feast In that conptry in th.j
near ruture with De la Barra. Diaz a!)(i Madero. with the Jester lights in 4he recent general disturbance all
oraerted with the one common desire and purpose to preserve Mexico from lurther civil strife and start it
again on the progressive jiath along x-hlch It was making such rapid steps before the revolt against the Diaz
i-rivernment Then, when peace Is restored we can imagine the' country, again united, calling on Porflrid
Diaz to return to his country there t0 dwell during his few remaining years and finally yield up the ghost
among his countrymen, his Kinsmen and friends.

The situation in the texlcan cai
fcil was regarded in military circles
today as unparallelled In modern his
tory experts were astounded at tho
ammun) tion resources of the con
tending forces. One army officer de
clared today that the United States
army could not fight six days as tho
combatants in Mex'co had done with
all the ammunition now on hand. Al
though theoretically equipped wi'ih
L0OO.O0O rounds of ammunition for
three inch field guns, less than 150,
000 rounds are In United States ar
emls. while of 6a.O0O rounds sup-
pose-d to be available for seige guns,
only 25,000 are In sght. Moreover,
i jout 1000 rounds a day represent
the entire maximum product or Unit
ed States arsenals.
A difficult question, disclosed toi
day Is llkelj to arise In connection
with prospective claims or American
residents or the City of Mexico for
pecuniary .damages growing out or
street fighting. Under ordinary rules
of International warfare, the govern
ment is not responsible for damages
sustained by individuals beyond its
power to prevent. Ordinarily that
relieve the Madero government ot
Iltruity. But it has steadily refused
to admit inability to extend full prtw
tection to foreigners, fearing a con
trary admission would involve the
-mmetrliate issue of a neutrality pro
clamation by foreign countries, which
would cut off the supply of war ma
terials. This attitude on the part of
the Madero government may justify
presentation of indemnity claims. In
the event Diaz Is successful It is
Iointed out he could scarcely success
fully assert that he was not directly
responsible for damage dealing hos
tilities. MEXICO CITY, Mex. Feb. 14. The
society of the American colony of
.Mexico City dre- up today a iro
test to the American people again-tt
the proposed plan or John Barrett, di
rector of the Pan-Amencan union, for
mediation i)i the Mexican struggle
by an International commission. Tie
protest reads- "The American colony
will be grateful to the Associated
Press it it will Indicate to the Amer
ican people through Its agencies the
vast harm that has been done by in
discreet comments or John Barrett
on the Mexican situation and by hH
proposed plans for amelioration,
wb;ch were published here. This Is
not the time for discussion but for
energetic action.
The American government's ener
getic attitude of activity and alert
ness revealed yesterday, made an x
celient impressfon here, both In sob
ering tho contestants, who are wag
ing a savage warfare in Mexico Cttv
and by arresting the panic among alt
the foreign elements."
Although firing on both sides was
lichter today, tbe total number ot
shells used was enormous and the de--trnctlon
of property great The loss
-f life among non-combatants as a
result of the shelling was probably
le3 than on other days, because
every one who had strength enougn
moved out of the districts near tha.
rcene of operations. The rebels' eon-
Jt;?ed helr artillery action largely to
