Colonel Chasaro is, a political exile and a bittar, enemy of the late Pres ident Carranaa, and whan the tragic death of the latter was Sashed through out the world, the colonel and his family, who an now (residing is Hon duras, determined to go back to their beloved host is Mexico City.

According to the popular idea of the Americans, Villa is an ignorant 'fel low. Inhuman and an accomplished marauder. Colonel Chaxaro, however, said: "Villa is not a man yon would call ig norant. It st true he Is not weU edu cated and he lacks the finishing touch es ot a gentleman, but, let me '.tell yon. Villa la a military genius; he has a wonderful love for the educa tion ot the Mexican people held in . commercial bondage, and his Ideals hate always been to educate himself, tot travel in Europe,. If possible, s that he can absorb the modern pro gress which he greatly admires. His conception of popular education is to mulUply the number of public schools until there are as many as there are oil wells in Mexico. For many years he voluntarily underwent sickness, privations, and exposed 'his life to numberless dangers with the sole hope if breaking. the despotic clique that jeld the reins of Mexican affairs for their' selfish end"" One thing that surprised me was to learn of Villa's love and. respect for America, for her great Institutions and democratic principles as told by Colon el Chaxaro. "But he hates the grin goes, those 'Americans of the adven turous class, prospectors whose In tentions are purely aggressive and 'ruthless in character, of whom there are many in Mexico," continued tbe editor of "Atlantlda." About Villa's strong influence upon his soldiers and loyal supporters in his campaigns, the cause waaexplain ed to me 1 nthe following words: "I fought with Villa and marched with him for almost two years.
