EXCLUSIVE IMPORTERS By Edward I. Hell. Three weeks ago Francisco Madero, though besieged in the national palace at Mexico City, was still president.

Mexico's federal army, with the exception of a few regiments then in open revolt, was supposedly loyal. Suspicion of treacherous intent had not rested upon any important army officer in the government service. The odds were seemingly in Madero's favor. The strategic position of the United States in relation to Mexico affairs is well known. Now that a complete overturn of the Madero government has taken place, with incidents too deplorable for American comprehension, certain vital questions are on hand for definite by the state department.

The questions are not merely of altruism, of abstract justice or diplomatic expediency. they are vital to the interests of every American As has been pointed out, the industrial advance of Americans into that country has been routed and driven back. It boots us little to rehash our errors and guess at what might have been if our statecraft had been of a broader brand. We must search for a card of re entry, and it does not seem that such a card can be found by following the wavering precedents of history. In former articles the various candidates for Mexico's presidency have been discussed.

All that is essential to know of them is known, lluerta, Diaz, De La Uarra, I.imantour, Ca lero, are names devoid of promise. Not one of them carries the confidence of the Mexican people.

CHARLES B. SWEET "The Burg lar" From a position close to the whirl of Mexico's governing machinery I saw and felt the overshadowing importance of Washington's attitude in Mexican affairs. Every demand for the protection of Americans sent a thrill through that country that added fuel to the fires of revolt against its government. Petty discontent developed, under the Washington lash, into distrust of Madero's intent and disgust at his weakness. Helpless, indeed, were the Americans there when all that came from their home government carried an implied threat.

Helpless, too, was the struggling experiment in democratic government under this added pressure. Helpless, always, will be that government of Mexico if it bo not helped hy its big and powerful neighbor. ed in this matter. If, with 40,000 Americans in that country, they sold Mexico a year in goods, with 100,000 Americans there they would sell much more. And if the 100,000 were of the straightforward, average American stamp, well backed by their home government, their influence upon the Mexican nation would be for its enduring good.

Instead of 100,000 there are perhaps 2500 Americans in Mexico today. All but fifteen or twenty who "stand in" would be glad to be back home with a whole skin. This strikes trade a telling blow. Will Washington, under new auspices, be unable to profit by the mistakes of the past to which the present condition of its trade and its people there is largely due?

M. LYLE'S GOLDEN DRIPS 4 lb. tin 30 horizon. The people of Mexico, unlettered as the mass may he, have hail a at self government they elected a president hy popular will. That the experiment was a failure may cow triem into present hut the seed of democracy has heen sown.

Just now, impoverished anil in dire straits, the nation may take the yoke. The people are tired of revolutions. Whatever looks like peace they will accept. Personal liberty, at the moment, is a secondary affair. Never was a nation more generally misjudged than Mexico.

Sentiment is more powerful with its people than the sword; for the mass are of pentle nature. We hear of constant turmoil. What percentage of the fifteen millions are enframed in it? Including the federal army perhaps one per cent, of the total! Hut it was ninety per cent, that followed Madero's banner to almost bloodless victory! Ninety per cent, want peace, one per cent, have grown used to pillage and murder, nine per cent, are the middle and upper classes that want what will bring them the easiest money or the most lucrative employment. In a general way, such is the people inhabiting the land adjoining us on the south. Offhand statements declare them turbulent, and history supports the contention.

Hut the turbulence of the mass is the revolt against tyrannical and unjust governmentthe kind of government they now seem destined to have and, thus far, with the approval of the United Stales diplomatic representative on the spot. Mexico spends a year for American goods in ordinary times. What class of goods is it? Are they selling Mexico articles of general need for the middle classes? Not at all. All the dry goods, except certain brands of American shoes and reily made men's suits, come from Kurope. they selling Mexico hardware am! groceries? The hardware is from Germany and the groceries from Spain.

Fxcptions to this consist of the negligible resident American demand. Mexico's imports from the United States are specialties and sundries for railway construction and equipment, mine equipment, agricultural machinery and electrical supplies. Take these items out and call back the few remaining Americans who insist on goods from "home" and the selling trade with Mexico dries up, leaving the United States the buyer of its silver, its hennequen and its hides. The question of trade with Mexico, the quality of its government, and the guarantees for American enterprise, we cannot well go on ignoring or disposing of with grandiloquent phrases of friendship.
