in the call for the holding of elec
tions the president of the republic
learned that his numerous friends
were putting him forward for the
first magistracy, and as in accord
ance with article 78 of the constitu
tion he could not he elected legally,
in a desire to avoid erroneous or
malevolent interpretations, and there
was not time to malce known his
views to the friends who were put
ting his name forward, he made a
most solemn declaration before the
honorable members of the diplo
matic corps accredited to the gov
ernment of this republic, that the
votes deposited for him in the ballot
boxes would be null and of no value
and that even in the event, legally
impossible, that the new congress
should declare him elected president,
he would not accept the office.
A Plea for Recognition.
"Relying, as the president does
rely, upon the solemn and important
offer of the honorable citizens who
figured as candidates for the presi
dency and vice-presidency and who
represent all the political parties of
the republic, sure that the most per
fect harmony will reign between the
three powers of the union and that
the governments of the world will
recognise without exception that only
the present government can call new
elections and guarantee their free
dom and efficacy, he hopes to fulfill
easily within the period which con
gress, shall designate his sacred duty
of, consecrating the national . desire
by the suffrage of the people thd ex
ecutive who is to rule definitely the
destinies of the -country. Otherwise
the realization of the executive's
program would not be possible with
in the long period of time. This pro
gram consists of peace and legality,
which are the only mediums in which
the elections may become the ex"
pression of the true popular will in
which the individual, native as well
as foreigner, may enjoy full guar
antees and in which the economic de
velopment of the republic may per
mit all social classes to gather the
fruits of their labors and the pro
ducts of their capital.
"By indication of the constitutional
president, ad interim of the republic,
General Victoriano Huerta, and with
the unanimous approval of the cabi

Dear W. Jennings:
It would be
A gracious deed of fine felicity
If you would but impart to me ., ,
Your little secret of publicity.
Why is it everything you do
Is promptly placarded and pageanted?
What is the plan that puts it
So cleanly, cleverly press-agented?
Why, even before I heard your view,
I scorned the monetary sciences
And breathed (tho Wall St. never
The usual passionate defiances.
But did that sain me praise or curse .'
Was my name trumpeted and tooted?
No, not a toot! And what was worse,
I wasn't even persecuted.
I, too, have served the unfizzed grape
Upon my humble supper table,
But did the 'gartered guests escape
And send the story home by cable?
Nay, Nay! but when you serve it
Ambassadors slide down the bannister
In haste to spread the wondrous thing
As tho' you'd served them grape
I've travelled the Chautauqua route
Fom Possamaquoddy to Matanzas,
But no one seemed to give a hoot,
Not even the Senator from Kansas.
They call you "Commoner," but why.
Why do they always Upper-Case you?
You are no commoner than I!
Why shouldn't I, sometimes, displace
They've thrown so many bricks at
You've made a mansion of the
YY1 iff fill 63
They've barbed and buried you. Next
They found you gathering figs from
So please, ok piease, reveal your plaa;
Please let me work at it, or play
Please tell a struggling fellow-man.
How do you always get away with it?
