These figures may not be qp'te accurate, but they are substantially accurate The minute the Frenchmen I were killed, the French government ? served such summary notice on Mexico that It has been exceedingly careful not to kill any others. When the Englishman. Benton, was killed, not merely did England flame up. hut it is ! actually true that far more interest was excited in this country than was shown over all of our own mm. women and children who were killed in .Mex ico. There have been no further out rages on the lives of Bruit subjects.! The Germans are not only safe, but at Tampico, for instance, enjoy special privileges. The Japanese enjov the same consideration. But meanwhile/ according to the best information at ? our disposal, the Mexicans have killed over three hundred Chinese; over Ave hundred Americans; and at least a couple of hundred Spaniards. 1 ask you to consider these facts. Tin vM?exicans have not killed a single German, and only one Englishmen. But they have killed several hundred Americans and several hundred Chi ncse They class the Germans and Englishmen as belonging to nations able to protect the lives of tiieir citi zens; whereas, thanks to Mr. Wilson, j they regard the Americans and the Chinese as equally safe to murder outrage and plunder.

M Strong Indictment. In the above statement I have used 'he exact words of Mr. Wilson s secn tao merely condensing the statrrmnt and keeping exactly Its sense. I haw not used one word not contained in' the statement. No Indictment by m?-| of Mr. Wilson's policy could Ik* as "trong as that furnished by himsHf. Immediately afterwards occurred the treacherous murder of our troops at j Carrlzal. Then Mr. WJIson became| frightened, bowed in abject suhmis-; fi on to Carranza. kissed the hand thai was red with the blood of American men and women, and, inasmuch as he; dared not hold Carranza responsible., began In unmanly fashion to scold Car ranza s wretched American victims. ' Mr. Wilson says he has k? pt us1 out of war.' The iJemocratic platform says that the Mexicans 'have made war, upon and murdered our people.' Fori once the Democratic platform told the ? ruth. Mr. Wilson says that some ofj the murdered men were barbarously mutilated. In tin: press one such case "f mutilation is described. Two troop ers of the Twelfth United States cav alry, Henry Stubbletteld and Klchard Johnson, on?- from Virginia and one from New York, were killed by Car ranza s troops at Progreso, Texas, on, September I!., I'll.Y Stubblellcld's body was found soon after the light Johnson was reported missing. but i Mexican prisoners informed our offl-! ccrs that Johrtson had been tortured and beheaded, his body thrown into' the Klo (irunde and his head and ears ! eitt off ami displayed to the populace! of the .Mexican town of Conception as evidence that American troops had, been routed. This was not tin excep tional instance; it was typical of what has gone on unchecked in Mexico. "Mr. Wilson and his followers arc fond of asking, when we criticize his action. 'What would won have done?' Kither one of two courses rould prop erly have been followed. It would have been defensible to have recognized llnerta. in view of the fact I hat other Kreat powers had recognized him; and. of course, it was finite Indefensible In refuse to recognize him, and yet recognize llenavides in Peru, and Car ranza in Mexico, in such event we; would have held [luerta to "strict ac-[ countabilily* by acts, for restoring; order in .Mexico and for protecting ? American life and properly. Fine Words. "This course would have been de fensible. Personally, it seems lo me that it would have been even belter to have done exactly what Mr. Wilson said he would do, but did not do. lie said to Congress on August 27. 1M3: We should let everyone who assumes' lo exercise authority in any part of! Mexico know in ihe most unequivocal way tha: we shall vigilantly watch tne fortunes of those Americans who can not get away, and shall hold those rc- 1 sponsible for their sufferings and loss-1 es to a definite reckoning. This can ? be and will be put beyond the possi bility of misunderstanding.' On the 'amt day hi; sent to the American consul general and consular agents In Mexico two telegrams Instructing them 'to notify all ofllclftls. military or "Ivll. exercising authority, that thev ivouhl be held .strictly responsible for inv harm done to Americans or for! njtirv to their property.' These were line words. Kxcellent words! Tliev were as good as the words in the Democratic platform, four years ago uid now. to the effect that all Ameri ran citizens, at home and abroad, must be protected In their rights, and no wrongs permitted against their per sons or property. The trouble is thai neither the promises and menaces of, President Wilson nor the pledges in! the Democratic platform, were worth i the paper on which they were written.! nor the breath expended In tittering them. "Mr. Wilson's note was explicit ami emphatic. If he had meant what be said, and if he had jmssesscd the' smallest fraction of the resolution ami! courage of such a Democratic presi-' dijnt as Andrew Jackson, he would have lived up to this notice, lie would have acled at once against every lead er, whether tfucrta. Villa or Carran-j za. or anyone else who permitted in-1 Jury lo American life and propertv. or who failed to prevent it; and If "nec essary. he would have sent some such! man as fieneral Leonard Wood into the country to behave precisely as we I behaved in Cuba, to rehabilitate Mexi co and lo restore her to her people Just as we did in the case of Cuba when order and civilization again oh-1 tained in the country. Instead of do-' ing this. President Wilson stood idlv by while hundreds of Americans were murdered. lie lias not protected American lives and American proper ty. All that he has done has been from time to time to help one bandit leader against some other bandit lead er. The Tamplco incident furnishes the best proof of this fact. There were S.SOO American refugees in Tam pico. whose lives were threatened b? the Mexican revolutionists. American gunboats were in the harbor to protect them. Dm President Wilson was not concerned with Iheir protection, lie was codcerned only with helping his friend. Villa. and antagonizing Villa's foe. Huerta. He was furnish ing Villa with the arms which Villa used for the slaughter of Americans. We have it on the authority of President Wilson's friend and cham pion. Senator Lewis, of Illinois. that Mr. Wilson actually Intend ed to recognize Villa, the tnur U'-rer. raider and robber, as presi dent. but was afraid to do so because of the Republican opposition. The American ships at Tamplco were' withdrawn from this duty of protect ing the lives of American men. worn ? n and children from would-be mur derers, and were sent to operate against Huerta at Vera Cruz, in the interest of \ ilia. The Americans owed their lives t0 the protection of the Oerman and British warships. [Whether this dreadful betrayal of duty was due immediately to the dl ; rect action of Secretary Daniels, or to the action of the otliccrs whom he had ; put in charge at Tamplco and Vera i.ruz, is of no consequence. The ultimate responsibility for this, and (for all the other shameful episodes in j Mexico, rests directly on President WilBon himself. Wilson Itulns Mexico. President Wilson has seen the Mexicans during these three and a I hair years become socially. politically | and morally bankrupt. Ho has not helped Mexico. He has ruined M"x ico. The jungle I* creeping over the 1 gr?*ta plantatoins. The cattle on the ranches have been wantonly and fully slaughtered. The thor oughbred Mock fifrrns which were the work of decades have been de stroyed. Irrigation plants are out of service, railroad terminals have been burnt. rolling slock and locomotives broken up and damaged beyond re pair Mines that furnished employ-1 inent to scores of thousands are stand ing Idle. The national treasury ha* been emptied. A paper currcncy. de-, based and worthless, has been substi tuted for ilie nation's money. All the means of an orderly economic life have l.i i n destroyed. An epidemic of ty phus rage* that twice has menaced the , health of our border cities. Tbe'coun try no longer produces .sufficient food stuffs. Actual starvation Is upon the people. Sixty thousand white men, who were one of the great civilizing and developing forces of Mexico, are tu exile. The jungle, the desert and a cruel primitive savagery hold sway. C'arrama's government Is but a shell of authority, based on murder and plund" r, limited to a few of the larg er cities and railroad lines, In an- ( tagonism to every organizing force upon which a government can rest.. The absolute refusal of the outside1 world to lentl it money Is evidence, of the low credit In which It Is held; and is also a grim commentary on Mr. Wilson's folly in assailing the Ameri can miners, ranchers, worklngmen.' in- - vestors and business men, who alone | rendered possible a healthy prosperity i| in Mexico. "in the message above referred to j President Wilson said that it was our| duty "i discbarge the trust that 'the Kr?*at powers of the world had placed j in our hands with reference to Mexico. II,;: he |,as done nothing to discharge this trust, lie has sent our sailorsi and soldiers to invade Mexican soil.1 These men have shot down Mexicans and have themselves been killed. Butj nothing lias resulted, except to in-i crease the hatred of the Mexicans for, Americans. He has continually pro-1 tested that he would not Intervene in Mexico, and yet he has intervened | continually in every way. from dtplo-, macy to war; but always with futility, and always with timidity. He has sin ned heavily against Mexico, lie has sinned against humanity, lie has sin ned most heavily against the United j States, lie has allowed Mexico to I drift into bloody anarchy. Mexico, needs peace and security. We can give peace and security to Mexico, but only If we show courage and resolu tion If we rail, then some foreign power will in the end itself do tin task. and make Mexico lis servant, to diir own Irreparable damage. Mr. Wilson la Inviting this disaster. We Are Concerned. It can not be a matter of Indiffer ence to its what kind of a government arises in Mexico. Mexico in its geo graphical ami physical aspects, with the Panama canal adjoining, rcprc- \ sents to the United States what the Ralkans and Asia Minor represent to Europe. There the Dardanelles and the Sue? canal are the prize, valuable as the Panama canal is valuable to us, as a source of profit and national power. After a decade of internal warfare and struggle in the Balkans the present world war resulted. If we let Mexico sink into permanent anarchy, and slio woursclvcs tno feeble to restore order, then sooner or later some old world military power will It self step in and take possession, with results as disastrous to its as the an archy in the Balkan peninsula has been disastrous to Kurope. Mexico, like Asia Minor, is a mountainous pe ninsula. It dominates the Caribbean j and has immediate access to both end* of the Panama canal. The govern ment in Mexico must necessarily inter-; act with and upon the government and i population of the northern half or the, South America continent. A strong: ad stable government in Mexico, work ing in harmonious relations with the] United States, could establish security j foi property and make It possible for i V.neriean enterprise to earrv railroads. Irrigation works and other benefits of, civilization into that territory. The development of the Mexican railroad net would enotile the United States, if the need ever arose, to hedp ward oil aggression by a foreign power. A railroad extending to the Panama would give us access by land to the canal, with which the future of thc^ United States is so intimately bound] up Su< U a Mexican government, rep - resenting the best torces of that coun trv, would be eager to work with u: by the tree exchange or what they have to give in return r?ir the advan tages or what we ran offer them. *nch a government would be of incalculable benefit t" Mexico itself, and would also add greath Ui the Security of the Unit ed States. A weak, disorganized Mex-' lean government as a willing or un willing ally of a foreign power, hos- j tile to our country, might do us irre-| parable damage. "It will take foreKinht. intelligence ? and self-sacrifice on the part of our j statesmen and our people to solve! these problems in the right way now ? so as to ward off danger in the future.' President Wilson's policies have heeo ' without plan or purpose; he has not ' looked beyond tomorrow; he has li"! objects aside trom momentary polit-; ical profit at home, and possibly the I gratification or personal spite towards1 or personal ravoritism for, some par-1 ticuhir bandit His attitude has shirt-! ed hither and tliither. At an enormous i expense to all that Is good and stablej in .Mexico and at a terrible cos' of American lives, property and prestige he has lirtcd Carranza into power. Through the maneuvering or an A-B-C. convention he placed him upon his! shaky pedestal and today by the ex pedient of another I-O-l" convention he is trying t?> prop and holster the tot - terlng structure. Yet at this very time. Carranza's government, which is wholly the child of President Wilson's diplomacy, turns against us. and there by foreshadows the course that this same man Carranza would take if. by the aid eif such loans, as It has beer vaguely hinted that the present admin istration is trying to secure for him ill financial circles, his government would become strong. This is shown in the New York World. Wilson's ad ministration organ. In a dispatch from its special representative at Newport, on October 10. it set forth that as soot, as the German submarines began to operate Ofr the coast, the Carranza del egates at the conrerenee 'became elat ed at the prospect or this country be coming involved in turther interna tional entanglements and their atti tude stiffened considerable.'
