MEXICO CITY, Sept. 25. If Mex
ico remains undisturbed by revolu
tions for the next ten years It will
probably see more rapid and more
substantial development than any oth
er country in the world. This belief
is enured by many far-seeing men who
are buying tp land everywhere with
a feeling of certainty that the prop
erty will rapidly increase in value.
Land In Mexico is cheaper," per
haps, than anywhere in the world and
offers unusual opportunities. A far
mer with" a scraner can build a dam
large enough to store water for the
irrigation of a large tract. Capital,
with ita .command of engineering tal
ent could change the face of Mexico
and plant orange groves and gardens
where now there are arid wastes.
The Mexican orange ripens sooner
than the Florida or California oran
ges and j could ; command the early
holiday trade in America, but the
groves here are not handled with ex
pert care, the result being that 'the
oranges are, as a rule, Inferior. . The
same groves improved and managed
by Americans would be highly profi
table. :.. ;i . ' 4
The reat barrier to progress i
Mexico is the harrowing experiences
of foreigners, particularly Ameri
cans, In the past few years. Even
men who own land here tremble at
the thought of returning to isolated
places with their, families. It will
take years of tranquility to dispel this
distrust. V..-.U; I
Americans Vho come to Mexico to
buy land in the future will probably
come in groups large nough to give
one another some sort of protection.
Repeal of the Mexican law forbid
ding foreigners to buy land within
sixty miles of the border would do
much to help in the development of
Mexico. Americans who would not
venture into the interior of Mexico
would buy farms with that area and
begin the development of a badly
neglected section of Mexico.'
Need New Blood. )
It is said that thousands of young
American farmers leave Iowa and
Kansas every year to seek homes in
'nada. Bv r encouragement ar.i
honest protection Mexico might get
some of these and no courier is in
greater jeed of new blood, neri?y
and brains. . ,
Mining wilt offer opportunities in
Mexico , but it will take years before
the tangle in titles is straightened out
There is a certainty of long and vex
atious litigation over some of the min
ing property which haa been closed
down owing to the distributed con
dition of Mexico Certain Mexican
sharpers expect to get possession of
mines under a law which clouds the
title to mines that have been shut
down or abandoned. " s
Persons who think of establiBhing
industries shou'd move with caution.
Surface indications are often mislead
ing in Mexico. ' An old man who had
made some money in .the United
States wenf to the town of Victoria
and built a plant for the manufacture
of ice. It is a large prosperous town
on the National Railway and it seem
ed that there would be a good sale
for ice. But there wasn't. Before he
could cultivate a taste for ice he had
to close his plant. . 1 '
If the .town had been full of ice
boxes before he arrived or if he had
been able to supply each house with
a refrigerator his ice plant might
have been more succesaful. t
PeopU Want Peace.
It seems certain that Mexico will
remain tranquil ,and that development
and progress will go forward undis
turbed. The people are tired of rev
olutions and will not respond to the
urgings of their diEgruntleH leaders,
who are always aching for a jight if
out of power. - One of the most pop

set on foot a revolution. But even
