a Man Of Brains "and- Capabilities MEXICO, I. P., March 12. Jose Yves Iimantour has been called the "WItte of Mexico." Grant fins: the appelation Its complimentary value, the Mexican minister of finance needs to borrow neither the name nor the fame "of the great Russian financier. The term is applicable to Limantour only as a means of impressing those who possibly may be "unaware of the gigantic and striking work done by him in rehabilitating the finances of the nartion and elevating its credit above that of the rest of the Latin American countries. A tall, slender man, with pure white hair, mustache and sidewhlskersv Li mantour is now in his 57th year. By birth he is a Mexican, although French blood predominates in his veins. There Is a faction in Mexico which h aggres sively antagonistic to Limantour, prin cipally on account of his French blood. By men who can think and :ake into account the material needs of the country, the mention of Limantour's name is often coupled with the ex pressed wish that he might become president. But that is hardly to be an ticipated. He has enemies, as has been said. Personally, the suggestion has always been extremely repugnant to him. It Is & moot question, too, if un der the constitution, which provides that the president must be Mexican born, Limantour is eligible to the office. LlmantoKr a Genius. Btrt, aside from all this, it is not de tracting from the eminence or the qual ifications of the 'minister of finance to aey that his services may be estimated to be of much more worth to Mexico In his present position than if he were in the executive chair. For finance Li mantour h&s Innate Inclinations which attain to the filginty of genius. For politics he hag neither predilection nor finesse. Next to Diaz, he is the most potent man in Mexico today, upon the principle that in any organization, political or commercial, the real power behind the throne Is the man who handles the money. Limantour keeps the purse-strings of Mexico tightly -within his clasp. He is an autocrat in bis department. He has to be. Sternal vigilance is the price of treasury surpluses. The head of every ther department in the government is fmbject to him, so fat- as money goes. When the budget estimates are made up, there im no tossing them to the tender steroies of congress, as with us, to be allowed to stand as Offered, or hacked and pruned unsparingly, according to the Quality sad strength of political in fluence which the department heads can 1 tflESW THE MEN AND WOMEN Who Enjoy the Choicest Products of the World's Commerce. Knowledge of What is Best Mere Important Than Wealth Without IL It must be apparent to every one that qualities of the highest order are necessary to enable the best of the products of modern commerce to attain to universal acceptance. However loudly heralded, they may not hope for world-wide pre-eminence unless they meet with the general approval, notof individuals only, but of the many who have the happy faculty of selecting and enjoying the choicest products. Their commenda tion, consequently, becomes important to others, since to meet the requirements of the well informed of all countries the method of manufacture must be of the most perfect order and the combination the most excel lent of its kind. After thirty years of gen eral usage, Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is every where accepted as th best of family laxatives. Its quality is due not only to the excellence of the laxative and carminative principles of plants known to act most beneficially on the system, but also to the method of manufacture of the California Fig Syrup Go., which ensures that uniform ity and purity essential in a remedy intended for family use.

T By Robert bring to bear. There is a budget com mittee of the Mexican congress. But tho budget committee Is Limantour. His word is the committee's law. Limantonr Cant ioHM. In the ordinary running of the gov ernment the principal rule which oper ates is simple and invariable. Each de partment Is allowed only as much money as Limantour is sure can be ob tained from the revenues. In other words, the expenses are forced to fit the nation's income. There are no deficits, excepting upon extraordinary occasions. Limantour will not allow them. Therefore Mexico presents the rare spectacle of a nation the receipts of which, year after year, are much more than the expenditures. There is no borrowing to meet deficiences. Tho Mexican government today Is one of the few nations on earth which is in tho position of a commercial house es tablished and run strictly upon busi ness principles. Mexico is in business, in a manner of speaking, to make money, and not to lose it. To an investor of today who planks down his money for Mexican bonds at par, or better, a humorous appeal will be made when he Is told of times when $200,000 cash was realized on a Mexican loan of 51,200,000. In one extremity the old-time financiers of the nation ran through the printing pressian Immense number of papal bulls, which had been sent to Mexico from Rome to be dis pensed as indulgences to the faithful upon payment of a price. By printing on the blank backs of the bulls prom ises to poy4 the government converted them Into treasury notes and put them Into circulation. Mexico's Deficit Sliminated. The deficit was eliminated from Mex ico's flhancialjscheme" of life as far back as the budget of 1895-6, only a year or two after Limantour became minister of finance. Before then finance ministers had groaned and wailed over the deficit, deploring it soulfully, but admitting their inability to prevent the nation from, to quote one minister, "marching blindfolded to the inevitable abyss of irremediable bankruptcy." In the past 14 years excesses of ordin ary revnues over ordinary expenditures has ranged from ?SOO,000 to $29,000,000 yearly. Last year's surplus was nearly $5,900,000. In the period mentioned the aggregate surpluses have amounted to more than $136,000,000, of which 361, 000,000 ha3 been devoted to public works and the remaining $75,000,000 cdnverted into a cash reserve.

He can sit down and figure out '-what the country' revenue will be for a year ahead with an accuracy that is almost uncanny. Hebrings. the appro priations well within the lowest pos sible sum to which the revenues may shrink, through causes foreseen or un foreseen. Always the deficit is held at bay, even though the man who sits on the lid of the treasury happens to be caught with an abnormally diminishing revenue, receding below the sum of the estimated disbursements. Here is an example. Last year Mexico began to feel sorel5r the widespread depression in business, which began in 1907. Her in come dropped off until it was nearly $13,000,000 less than it had been in the previous fiscal year. T-he estimates of revenue were 103, 400,000, but the actual collections were only $9S,775,000, or about $4,600,000 less "Was there a deficit? There was not. The surplus bobbed up serenely, as per custom. When Limantour saw the storm coming, he fell back upon that comfortable nestegg of surpusses ac cumulated in the fat years that had gone before. By transferring certain disbursements from the budget to the reserve, as was allowable under the law he brought the year to a close with a surplus of ?5,S0$,000, which was the difference between the disbursements of $93,000,000 and the total revenues -of $99,000,000. Diaz on Xat Ion's Debt. Of the dark days of Mexico's financial chaos, president Diaz not long ago gave a vivid description, when ha said: "When in December, 1884, I again, by the will of the people, took charge of the supreme magistracy of the republic, my administration found itself confronted with a debt to the banks of $11,000,000, with considerable liabilities to the railroad companies for subven tions and with notes -to private persons, all secured by collateral, for $4,500,000. The pay of tho civil employes of the government was at that time three months in arrears, and tlie public revenue was tied up, the receipts of the federal district being in their entirety pledged to the National Bank. While as to the proceeds of the various custom houses not more than 12.63 per cent of the total was available, even In those customs houses the receipts of which were less encumbered." Diaz speedily contpeled the taking of steps to handle tho country's foreign debt In a manner ntore satisfactory to Mexico's creditors. Between 1ES4 and 18S0 she managed to borrow enough money to provide for her obligations, and to take over the control of the Te huantepec railroad. The federalization of this line, by the way, is conceded to be one of the best Investments the country ever made. In another article something of the history and the im portance of the Tehuantepec line, and of Its future, will be told. The Sliver Crisis. Banking syndicates took their final toll of Mexico's necessities In 1S93, when the silver crisis depreciated the value of her mining products appallingly. She was forced to borrow $15,000,000 to make. ends meet. The underwriters got the Issue of 6 percent bonds at 68 3-4. Since then she has been able largely to dictate .her own terms in borrowing operations. The confidence of finan ciers in her credit and the respect with which she Is treated when she goes into the money market can proceed, manifestly, only from one cause insis- tence of the administration that internal peace must be preserved, and the cori fldence of the. world that Diaz could enforce it. It in Interesting to compare the per centages of the disbursements for gov ernmental purposes for last year and for a few years back, to show how Mexico has increased her expenditures for education and peaceful purposes and reduced those for war. The figures are from the financial statement fur nished congress by the minister of fi nance In December last: s 1903-4 190S-9 Public debt 1 33.85 27.82 War 19-88 Communications and public works 11.41 17.50 14.13 6-K Public instruction 4.14 Public health, police and charities 2.45 . 3.82 Mexico Xot Extravagant. Mexico has exhibited noteworthy sanity Is refusing to plunge into the tempting extravagances of huge army and navy establishments. She does not need them, and so her budgets-have not been laden down with Immense appro priations for their increase and up keep. She Is not keen on Dreadnaughts and is quite satisfied to let other na tions rule the wave. She spent last year on her armj which has utility principally as a national police force, ; nc,l only $13,970,000, while her navy j i-ujl ; her less than $1,000,000. As matter of fact, the army is disproportionately small for her size and the number of the inhabitants. But labor is scarce in Mexico. Every man taken into the army, Diaz says, filches' a needed pair of hands from the field or the shop. So he has kept down the size of the army and put forth exertions to In crease the training and efficiency of the officers, and co-jointly, those of the rank and file. Millions for Improvements. The millions . that might have been wasted In a vain glorious essay to pon der 4o a zest for military glory, or in seeking'to make Mexico a power on the sea, have been devoted to internal im provements. Examples of these are the fine port works at the Atlantic and Pacific ends of the Tehuantepec rail way, at Veracruz and other harbors; subsidizing railroad line's, building highways, subsidizing lrrlgafion pro- tA tJI8 Phone 2958. ring 1 J tji. tdji, IV "Mexico j.

This last has done as much as anything to attract foreign capital to Mexico. Then there Was the abolition o the "alcabalas" to which task IImantour set himself early in his career. Persons who traveled in Mexico, and proceeded from one state into another, as recently as 15 years ago will tell earnestly and profanely of (their experiences with the customs collectors who stcod at every state line to collect toll on baggage and merchandise. The system amounted to an Inter-state tariff. Because of the "alcabalas," which was a relic of the Spanish occupancy, consumption of ar ticles of domestic manufacture were largely restricted to the states in which they were produced. Importing Goods. It was cheaper in 'some states to im port goods from abroad, paying freight , and customs, ithan to purchase similar articles of domestic manufacture. L.1- i mantour caused the inter-state tariff 1 BIIXIG NEWS. Capt. P. H. Durack Buys Machinery for Property in El Paso. In the Bscondida mountains, south of the great mines of San Pedro, and two miles south of the station of Summit, on the Mexico-Northwestern railroad, about 150, miles south of this city, in the northwestern part of Chihuahua Mex., is a group of mining claims, con sisting of the Sierra Madre, and Anexes No. 1 and No. 2, the Francisco. Colum bia, and King Edward, covering an area of over 200 acres, belonging to Capt. Patrick H. Durack, of El Paso, and associates, who are residents of St. Paul, Minn., Houston, Texas, and El Paso. No formal incorporation has yet been made, but the owners are vilnancially able to do all the necessary development work required at present. Capt. Durack, who Is an experienced mining, man, has done a large amount of development work since he discovered and de nounced trie properties, and under the most trying circumstances and diffi culties has accomplished what would have discouraged most men. These mines are lead-silver and gold propositions, the mineral occurring In very wide fissures cutting -the lime stone formation.

The impetus given to native production in manufactured ar ticles was immediate and tremendous. The adoption of the "gold exchange standard" and the nationalization of the bulk of railroad mileage of tho coun try, are more recent examples of the daring. progressive and profitable strokes of Mexican national finance which go to Limantour's credit. Mexico brought her currency In line with that of the other commercial nations of the world under the promptings of similar considerations as those which operated in abolishing (the "alcabalas." While the currency laws enacted four years ago supply stability to exchange rates they also make provision for the general use of silver money in commercial transac tions in Mexico. Foreign Capital. Foreign capital has been pouring into Mexico unremittingly in the past de cade. The latest estimates are that American Investors alone have consid erably more (than one billion invested here. Mexico could never have traveled so far on her own financial resources. The money is -not in the country, and If it were the Mexican is" apt to be chary about risking it in enterprises of a speculative nature. He Is losing some of his backwardness, and today Mexican capital is being utilized more and more freely. Diaz ami Liimantour have been severely criticized by some who plead uTtra-patrlotic motives for their friend liness to foreign capitalists. But results seem to prove that their attitude in this respect was based up'on solid, far-seeing utilitarian grounds. No one can assert with truth that Mexico has lost any thing by affording facilities for Amerl caiW and other investors to earn big returns on their investments. On the contrary, she has gained in every way. Next article Mexican Railroads. MINING NEWS. Charles .Smith Cites History of Bios Padre and Other Old Producers of the Ee public. Charles Smith, a prominent mining man, ajter an absence of several years, has returned to this city on business. He is in charge of the properties called Dios Padre or Trinidad mines, near Trinidad, in the Sahuaripa district, Son ora, Mex., which belong to the Greene Gold and Silver Mining company. The camp is 50 miles east of La Dura, through which the new Cananea rail road passes on the way to Tonichi, and to reach ultimately Nacozarl. Discovered by Spaniards. "The Dios Padre mine has been worked," says Mr. Smith, "off and on for over 100 yearsy and has produced perhaps $2,000,000. "This rich mine was discovered by the Spaniards, who had previously found and were working the Santa Rita mine; and while packing bullion over the trail through the Sierras to Chihuahua, they found some rich outcrops on the trail and began .exploration work on the presenDIos Padro mine. "Building vaso smelters, 'they were so successful that they took out a large amount of rich ore. Subsequently, after a long period of idleness, due to the raids of Indians, the mine was taken up in the seventies by Alzuah. In four years of that time Francisco Carleton, an American, now living in Santa Rosa, operated it so successfully that it ! cleared over $400,000 profits. English Company Gets Control. "Upon the death of Alzuah, Ramon Corral, now vice president of Mexico, acting as administrator of the estate, took charge of and bonded the mine to an English company. The latter made a bad Job of mining, spending a great amount of money -in machinery and surface improvemnts, building a 400 ton mill, cable trains, expensive roads In short they were riotously extrava gant, as evidenced by machinery scat tered all over that locality. Mean while they did no development nor ex ploration work on the mine. In fact, the main shaft is down 215 feet deep, about 100 feet below the level of the arroya. There had not been any work done In the mines for 30 years and It was the sakie,' as when I was first ther In 1382. CKher Owners. "After that company gave up, Corral went to work and 'chlorlded' it for the Alzuah heirs and in four or five vears took out 125,000. Then Manuel Jesus Olea and Augustino Ainsa leased it from Corral, paying $500 rental a month and made money. They, however, only gutted the old ore stopes and pillars, doing no development work. After this Richard Bros, took a hand and lease and turned it over to the Greene Gold and Silver company. Spenks of Incompetence. "W,hoever has had possession of the mine and made a failure, has done so through Incompetence. Whenever the Dios Padre has not paid it has been due to bad management. As far as devel oped, it showed it is a big mine. I speak of these failures to Illustrate a not unusual thing In that country. The state of Sonpra, like many other mining countries, id strewn with old plants and ruined machinery, monuments of the in competence of the managers and folly of the Investors, who spent hundreds of thousands In those things instead of exploiting and developing the proper ties first to find out whether the prop erties were worth anything. There are plenty of the same kind of operations going on now. Cause of Failure. "Idont see why this property if prop erly managed can not be made a good paying proposition. It does not make much water, but the water is aciduous and mineralized. But there is no serious difficulty to contend with. "I will reiterate that the cause of most failures in mining in Mexico Is that many American and other foreign companies in the first place put in in competent managers. "It war. an old saying in Nevada that 'A mining engineer is a man with a khaki suit, and a dinky pick.' This re ferred to the fresh college graduates without practical experience, who would expend very little In development, and who would, when (they saw a rich streak or stringer, get excited and put in expensive machinery. "In the same district are La Bufa and the Cienlga mines, famous old producers, but now Idle. Quite a num ber of people are down In that section nrospectlng and working old mines and more are coming all the time, now that the Lew railway Is within 50 miles and former difficulties of transportation a thing of the past.

This Is an A No. 1 property and Its present manager, Webster, I believe is a very competent man. He has had great diffi culties to contend with, for in the last rainy season the prior management al lowed the mine to get flooded, which, from all accounts, could have been avoided, had they not stoped out the ore to the surfaced making an opening for the rain waters to rush in. "The ores near the surface and the pillars should have been left for futura reserves. They were as good there as money in "the bank, and could have been taken out any time. "The un watering is a big Job, but I don't doubt it will be accomplished, and the mine will become a good producer."
