Washington, May 20.?Now
that Mexico is so much in tho
public mind and bye, some;
features of, that revolution- j
stricken republic, just, made
public here by the National
Geographie Society, are of un?
In the first place, few people
realize that the area of Mexico
is practically as large as that of
I the I) nitod States between the
Mississippi River and the At?
lantic Coast, the Great Lakes
and the Gulf of Mexico, varying
in altitude from sea-level to
10,000 feet. Its climate is
affected by these elevations and
by a range of IS degrees of lati
, tilde, Twelve hundred miles is
'the distance traversed in pas?
sing, south from Juarez on the
northern boundary to the ciipi
tol, and '.>oii miles more to the
southeastern boundary. The
Gulf of Mexico and the Carri-j
bean Sea coast line extends fori
1,700 miles while the Pacific
ocean and the ( hilf of California
'touch 4,000 miles of Mexican
The average density of popu?
lation of Mexico approximates
20 per square mile, the most
thickly populnted portions, out?
side of the federal district being
the States of Tlaxcala and Mex?
ico, the former being smaller in
area than Delaware and of
about tho same density of popu?
lation. The State of Mexico is
j nearly as large both in popula?
tion and area as New Ilamp
Tho form of government
! adopted by Mexico follows that
in general of the United States,
having executive, legislative
and judicial divisions. Knch
of- the 27 States is represented
) in two houses of congress, com?
posed of senators and deputies.
j Congress holds two sessions
each year for limited periods.
I Each State has its governor and
' legislature and is sub-divided
into districts or counties, over
which n "jefo politico" is |
placed, the districts having
subsidiary municipalities with
magistrates, presiding officials
and councils. The so-called
autocratic feature of the gov?
ernment may be largely due to
the fact that governors hold
ollice with the approval of the
president, that jefo politicos
have similar relations with the
governors, and that the officers
of the municipalities are gen?
erally controlled by the jefo
Tho church and state are in?
dependent, and congress can?
not puBs laws prohibiting or
establishing any religion. (If
the r-.,oiH),nlM> inhabitants, two
fifths claim descent from
ancient tribes or families which
are accepted as the basis of
Mexican history, two-fifths are
of mixed native and foreign
blood, the remainder are classed
under the foreign appellation
The city of Mexico, 24(1 miles
by rail west of Vera Cruz, and
2,700 feet in altitude is reached
by two rail routes, climbing
from the hot hinds through
difficult mountain passes, one
of which closely follows the
trail taken by ('ones in 1510,
by Qeneral Winfiehl Scott with
